Meet familiar friends and new neighbors in this playful collection of nursery rhymes.
On a misty, moisty morning, we meet the snoring old man, and by evening we’re running through the town with Wee Willie Winkie in his nightgown. A day full of nursery rhyme enchants, delights, and enlightens young readers.
Gorgeous illustrations paired with quintessential nursery rhymes introduce familiar friends like Little Bo Peep, Georgie Porgie and the Grand Old Duke of York, as well as meet new neighbors, including Little Polly Flinders, Honest John Boldero and Little Tommy Tucker.
An attractive and easily giftable collection of tried and true favorites.
