KIRKUS REVIEW

Traditional rhymes (The House That Jack Built, Humpty Dumpty), poems by well-known authors (The Huntsmen -- Walter de la Mare, Sea Shell -- Amy Lowell), and original verse by Rene Varlay based on children's interests (Fire Engines, The Big Bass Drum, The Silver Spaceship) are the basic components of this lively collection. A record is included with a melody for each poem sung by Frank Luther. The disc, a 33-rpm, pocketed inside the back cover of the book is an extra added attraction-for the book can stand on its own, thanks to Jeanne Owens' sprightly and refreshing drawings that bounce with rhythm and appeal. An ideal gift item, this is also recommended for kindergarten and first grade classrooms.
