9781847172112: Sally Go Round The Stars: Favourite Rhymes from an Irish Childhood

A major, beautifully-illustrated collection of favorite nursery rhymes known and loved throughout Ireland. It includes favorite international, British and Irish rhymes as well as special Irish favorites. ""Webb and Ranson collect nearly 70 nursery rhymes from ""old Irish song books, traditional nursery rhyme books and our own childhood memories."" Many of the selections-""Old MacDonald,"" ""Row, Row, Row Your Boat,"" ""Hey, Diddle Diddle""-will be familiar to American readers, but the lesser-known entries are no less charming. McCarthy's illustrations bring a good deal of humor to the pages, yet also conjure a bedtime feel when appropriate. A lovely collection that warrants an audience well beyond the Emerald Isle.""-Publishers Weekly ""The selections and presentation convey a lively sense of humor... . Parents, child-care providers, and elementary school teachers will find this a wonderful resource for encouraging literacy and imagination.""-School Library Journal
