The Cow Tripped Over the Moon: A Nursery Rhyme Emergency by Jeanne Willis- OPTIONAL

Willis, Jeanne The Cow Tripped Over the Moon: A Nursery Rhyme Emergency. Candlewick Press, 2015. $15.99. Chapter Book.  Content: G. Have you ever wondered what happened to Humpty Dumpty after he fell from the wall? What occurred after the 24 blackbirds flew out of the pie? In this rhyming picture book these and many more beloved nursery rhymes are explored in a whole new light. We really enjoyed to detailed illustrations but didn't like the way the book was written in rhyme. It was difficult to keep the correct rhythm while reading and we feel like the story would have been better without rhyming. The illustrations are extremely detailed and in beautiful colors. Each page is action packed with much for little eyes to explore. Pre-K. EL (K-3). OPTIONAL. Reviewer: SL.
