Mary and Her Little Lamb by Will Moses - ADVISABLE

Moses, Will Mary and Her Little Lamb: The True Story of the Famous Nursery Rhyme.  Philomel (Penguin),  2011.  $18.  Content: G.  PICTURE BOOK.  Yes, Mary was a real little girl who rescued a little lamb who loved Mary so much that he followed her to school.  John Roulstone was at school that day and gave Mary a poem.  Eventually it was set to music and has been sung and played by children of many generations.  Moses’ folk art illustration style is a perfect accompaniment to Mary’s story.  And what a fun resource for a kindergarten teacher or a piano teacher who has heard it played by many little fingers.  PRE-K, GIFT – ADVISABLE.
