    Nursery rhymes and 3 nursery stories: "The Story of the Three Little Pigs," "The Story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears," and "The Story of the Little Red Hen."

  2. Sylvie Gold says:

    Simple illustrations in bold colors adorn 22 classic nursery rhymes and three favorite folktales. Each rhyme is presented in its traditional text, and most of the illustrations follow traditionally seen patterns as well, though Chapman adds a few creative touches in depicting some of the rhymes. For example, the "knave" in "The Queen of Hearts" is seen rubbing his backside while the stern king urges him forward to return a plate of heart-shaped tarts to the queen; the three blind mice chase the knife-wielding farmer's wife with bandanas over their eyes; Mary, Mary Quite Contrary's garden sports actual silver bells hung from the otherwise bare branches of a small tree, while sea shells and a row of dolls sit up in the grass to represent the "cockle shells" and "pretty maids."

    The three folktales are told in simple language to be easily understandable to young listeners. There is no sugar-coating in the story of "The Three Little Pigs": the first two pigs are eaten by the wolf, and the ending finds the third little pig living happily ever after once he has "boiled up the wolf until nothing was left of him." The incidents with the apple orchard and the butter churn are not included. "The Little Red Hen" gets a simple and straightforward, traditional retelling as well, but Chapman makes some interesting choices in the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." Papa and Mama Bear become "Daddy" and "Mommy" Bear; Goldilocks finds the bear parents' bowls of porridge "much too salty" and "much too sweet" instead of too hot and too cold; and while Daddy Bear's bed is "much too high," Mommy Bear's bed is "much too lumpy," thus disrupting the established opposites pattern. Otherwise the story follows the traditional format.

    This is an appealing collection for sharing with toddlers and young children.

  3. Noel Al-Mansoori says:

    This book was very strange to me and more about the illustrations than the actual written content itself which may not be too big of a deal for younger children. I was very confused about this poem.

  4. Rhiannon Hubble says:

    1. Genre: Mother Goose

    2. This is a lovely collection of nursery rhymes and fairly tales, many of which will be new to children, but some that remain classics.

    3. A. Area for comment: Abundant use of content

    B. While I realize this is a collection of nursery rhymes and fairy tales for children, I also feel like Chapman attempted to include too many tales and rhymes. Likewise, I feel like some of the nursery rhymes were lacking, while the fairy tales were given more thought and detail.

    C. On page, 27, Chapman writes the nursery rhyme Hickory, Dickory, Dock. She includes but the first stanza in the rhyme and while that may be all that sticks with young children, I think that it is important to include the rhyme in its entirety. The same can be said for Yankee Doodle on page 46. Additionally, Mary Had a Little Lamb is written with the four stanzas that I am familiar with. Likewise, the story of the Three Bears and the story of the Little Red Hen is written in its entirety. I think that Chapman could have been more consistent with including more of the stanzas in the nursery rhymes.

    4. These rhymes and tales are very interesting and fun to read to students. Some of the stories have incredible moral themes which are very appropriate to teach students. If I were to use this book within my classroom, I would probably pick what I wanted to read to them depending on what we are currently studying. It may also be good for students to explore during a fairy tale unit.

    The book Sing a Song of Sixpence by Jane Chapman contains the good “old fashioned” and familiar nursery rhymes. The pictures are colorful and bright and a bit humorous. After viewing the book, I saw a video on the rhyme Sing a Song of Six Pence and clicked on it.
    To be honest, I never really cared for this Mother Goose rhyme, Sing a Song of Six Pence, but seeing it makes it much more enjoyable than just reading it in a book. The video that was made for this rhyme brings it to life and helps make more sense of the words. The illustrations are colorful and eye catching and the flying effect of the birds helps keep ones attention.
    This would be a good “hook” to use before introducing a unit on habitat. After showing the video I would ask if any of the students would want to eat a pie made up of black birds. Then I’d give them some homemade play dough and have them create their own pies and after they are finished they’d write in their journal about the pies that they made answering questions like: What kind of pie did you make? Why? How did you make your pie? Was it delicious?

    A. Area of Comment: Media
    Jane Chapman attempts to capture the reader’s attention by using simple but colorful illustrations to compliment the text.
    B. Chapman’s use of acrylics for her illustration media makes for clean and vibrant pictures that will draw a child’s attention into her book. The pictures have are absent of great detail but the colors convey a child-like presence to them.
    C. On pages 28 and 29, Chapman has created an illustration that takes up both pages but serves two different nursery rhymes (Mary,Mary, Quite Contrary and Little Miss Muffet). The illustrations allow the reader to keep their attention on the picture but still want to the read the rhymes.
    Curriculum Connection: This book can easily be used in pre-k to lower level elementary grades to teach rhyming.

  8. Tim Hackbarth says:

    Sing a Song of Sixpence is a compilation of traditional children's nursery rhymes. Many of them use rhyme and verse. I would use selections to teach children rhyme and rhythm. There are also selections with some historical context. I would use them in conjunction with a social studies lesson about the time period or if there was a significant cultural connection. These nursery rhymes can be used with any grade level.

  9. Shala Howell says:

    Nicely illustrated collection of rhymes.

  10. Lupine says:

    Has the classic nursery rhymes but, even better, some classic fairy tales (like Goldilocks & the Three Bears) that are accessible to toddlers and preschoolers.
