Publisher Comments:

Fingers ready?

Fingers set?

Fingers play!

It's time for Playtime Rhymes-a treasury of twenty favorite finger rhymes compiled and illustrated by the bestselling and beloved artist Marc Brown for the enjoyment of young and old.

From the clever Whoops! Johnny and funny Do Your Ears Hang Low? to the irrepressible Itsy-Bitsy Spider and rousing Wheels on the Bus, these are rhymes to say and sing aloud, each with pictorial instructions for the correlating finger movements.

An interactive experience at its very best, Playtime Rhymes will get little hands wiggling, jiggling, pointing, pounding, bending, stretching, and dancing as children animate the rhymes, pore over the vibrant pictures, and share the fun with family and friends.

Review:

"Brown shares 20 favorite 'finger rhymes,' using tiny iconlike boxes to demonstrate the hand gestures and bodily movements that accompany each line of verse. For 'The Wheels on the Bus,' a cartoon boy mimics the movement of the wheels by spinning his hands round and round (arrows indicate movement); in the main illustration, a trio of passengers board a bus piloted by a cheerful redheaded woman in sunglasses. Other songs include 'I'm a Little Teapot' (which features an anthropomorphic floral teapot and five teacups dancing around like ballerinas), 'The Itsy Bitsy Spider,' and 'Five Little Pigs.' Brown's gouache and colored pencil artwork — which involves painting, scraping, and repainting gessoed wood panels — gives the book a vintage, weathered effect as it loosely guides readers through the seasons of the year and offers many hands-on opportunities for adult-child play. Ages 3 — 6." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
