KIRKUS REVIEW

An adaptation of This Is the House That Jack Built in the story of bread from ""seed of whiskery wheat"" to the grocery store that sells the bread ""that Betay especially likes to eat"". The gay rhythm of the old nursery rhyme is charmingly used to give pattern to the story of our daily bread. Big, colorful poster-block pictures by Allen Ullmn make every page fun for the Picture Book Age. The familiar beat of the rhyme will prove an aid to beginning readers if this is stepped up to primer level. Attractive-and worthwhile-merchandise. Full color-clear type-paper over boards.
