story time - featured book

Today for story time we read a book called 'The Neighborhood Mother Goose' by Nina Crews. This urban adaptation is so much fun to read! The photographs are edited to go along with the rhymes in such a fun way!

I would highly suggest this book to anyone who wants to go back to their favourite nursery rhymes with a fresh outlook. The author drew her inspiration from her Brooklyn neighbourhood for the artwork, and I love it! Reminds me a bit of the sesame street neighbourhood.

Check it out sometime!

Here are a few page excerpts from the book. One is from Humpty Dumpty, the other is from 'To market, to market, to buy a fat pig'

Have a nice day!
