This lively board book marks the debut of Handprint's Nursery Play-Along Classics. This just-right-for-lap-time title features not only whimsical illustration and full text of a nursery favorite, but also an engaging picture-story expanding on the verse, and clear visual instructions to allow a parent to actively share the material in delightful, playful interludes with young listeners.

Our earliest awareness of language often comes from chanting beloved nursery rhymes. Equally important, they provide hours of funto recite, to act out, to extend into imaginative stories. The Nursery Play-Along Classics, illuminated in soft pencil and pastel hues, are the perfect and most enjoyable way to introduce these essential texts to babies and young toddlers.
