Fingers ready?
Fingers set?
Fingers play!
It's time for Playtime Rhymes-a treasury of twenty favorite finger rhymes compiled and illustrated by the bestselling and beloved artist Marc Brown for the enjoyment of young and old.
From the clever Whoops! Johnny and funny Do Your Ears Hang Low? to the irrepressible Itsy-Bitsy Spider and rousing Wheels on the Bus, these are rhymes to say and sing aloud, each with pictorial instructions for the correlating finger movements.
An interactive experience at its very best, Playtime Rhymes will get little hands wiggling, jiggling, pointing, pounding, bending, stretching, and dancing as children animate the rhymes, pore over the vibrant pictures, and share the fun with family and friends.

About the Author:

Marc Brown is the creator of the bestselling Arthur Adventure book series and creative producer of the number-one children's PBS television series, Arthur. He has also illustrated many other books for children, including If All the Animals Came Inside, Ten Tiny Toes, Wild About Books and Wild About You. Marc lives with his family in Martha's Vineyard.

From Booklist:

Brown, whose books Finger Rhymes (1980), Hand Rhymes (1985), and Play Rhymes (1987) were library staples for years, offers 20 of his favorite action rhymes for today’s children and their grown-ups to enjoy together. Each rhyme appears on one or two double-page spreads, illustrated with large, softly colored pictures. Beside the large-print lines of text, tiny drawings show the actions that should accompany those lines. Although the origins of the individual rhymes are not given, the book is dedicated to Mother Goose, and many of them can be attributed to her. Others, such as The Wheels on the Bus and I’m a Little Teapot, are more modern. In an appended note, Brown comments on the appealing illustrations, created using with gouache and colored pencils on gessoed wooden panels. Focused primarily on active children and dressed animals, but full of lively details, the pictures create a childlike world where reality and fantasy coexist very comfortably. A fine read-aloud choice for young families and an attractive source of rhymes for baby, toddler, and preschool storytimes. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan
