Every toddler knows the words to this song, so this sturdy, sunny board book is perfect for the very young. Full color. Age 3 and under.
PreS--This board-book series is based on the concept that preschoolers will learn to "read" by turning the pages, looking at the pictures and words, and singing the familiar songs that they have memorized. In Bear, a cub leaves his mother to make the trek up the side of the mountain, basket of flowers in hand. He looks around and returns to his mother's arms after tumbling down the hill. In the final frame, he attempts the trip again. In Itsy-Bitsy, a goose wanders near a drainpipe at the corner of a house and a spider plops out of nowhere onto its beak. Filled with humor and warmth, Wells's colorful illustrations bring new life to these favorite rhymes. Simple and short with large print, these cozy books will be welcome additions.--Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
