PreS A popular singing game, beautifully illustrated with brilliant colors. Rae uses a colorful folk-art style to capture the spirit of this familiar childhood rhyme. The text and illustrations form a working relationship, with the illustrations extending each brief verse. Text is symmetrically spaced in a bordered box on the left-hand corner of each double-page spread while detailed illustrations take up the remaining space. The overall effect is reminiscent of Aliki's Go Tell Aunt Rhody (Macmillan, 1986) and Hush Little Baby (Prentice-Hall, 1968). A brief historical explanation of the rhyme, ideas for playing the circle game, and the words to the entire song along with the music are appended at the end of the book. A fun-filled book that will be useful for story times, for primary school teachers, and for family sharing. Bessie Egan, Winnipeg Public Library, Manitoba, Canada
