Danielle Wright enjoyed teaching migrants English when gaining her CELTA and then worked with many different migrant organisations while writing speeches for Sir Barry Curtis (when he was the Mayor of Manukau). During this time, she was surprised to learn that there are over 165 different ethnic groups in Manukau alone! Danielle lives in Auckland, New Zealand.Mique Moriuchi lives in London, where she uses bits and pieces, textured paint and collage to create rich and unique pictures for children's books such as Granny Torelli Makes Soup by Sharon Creech and Talk Peace by Sam Williams. Mique Moriuchi has a (BA) Hons. in Graphic design from Norwich School of Art & Design and an MA in sequential design and illustration from the University of Brighton. Michael Rosen is one of the best known figures in the children's book world and the British arts scene. He has written numerous award-winning poetry books, non-fiction and picture books. He is also a journalist, broadcaster and performer, who visits schools in the UK and abroad with his one-man show. He was Children's Laureate from 2007-9, using the post to be an "ambassador of fun". He supports Arsenal Football Club and lives in north London.From Booklist:
Sunny, winsome art illustrates global sampling of nursery rhymes. The entries range from brief and descriptive, such as New Zealand’s “Big Whale” (“Swish your tail, whale / Spout your blowhole”), to rhythmic and sensory, as in Norway’s “Rain” (“Zick, zack, / Hour after hour, / Tick, tack, / Shower after shower”). A few selections, such as Denmark’s narrative, droll “Snowman Frost,” may resonate more with children slightly older than the usual nursery-rhyme audience. Moriuchi’s vibrantly hued, mixed-media illustrations shine with playful, textured scenes, rendered in paint and paper collage, of multicultural children and animals in diverse settings. Although each translated poem is also accompanied by text in the original language, the title lacks pronunciation guides, which could make for some awkward (or creative) read-alouds. Overall, though, children will enjoy the diverse views, in both text and visuals, of universal, child-friendly topics and activities, from kite flying to bathtime. Rosen’s lively introduction provides more background about nursery rhymes, and the poems’ source notes are appended. Pair this with Floella Benjamin’s Skip across the Ocean: Nursery Rhymes from around the World (1995). Preschool-Grade 2. --Shelle Rosenfeld
