Children's books and book reviews - reading resource of children's literature for kids, teachers, librarians, parents



Every child should have a variety of nursery rhyme books in their library, and I wouldn’t hesitate to include this one. It’s half past eight, and the nursery rhyme characters are at Mother Goose’s country house for a sleepover. The rhyming invitation is spelled out in the stars, and the message is passed on through the cow from "Hey Diddle Diddle".

There are ten jungle animals to meet in this book, and six flaps to turn to learn about opposites: “Hello Zebra, your stripes are black and white.” When the flap (which is a bit smaller than the regular page) is turned, a parrot can be seen soaring over the zebra’s head. “Hello there, parrot, your feathers are multi-colored.” Click here for more of the curledupkids.com book review of Liesbet Sleger's Quiet Koala, Noisy Monkey: A Book of Jungle Opposites.
