Big Book of Nursery Rhymes by Kali Stileman

 My Review

Well, this Big Book of Nursery Rhymes is simply delightful! Any child loves nursery rhymes as they are so easy to remember and I think they feel a big achievement at being able to remember and say them themselves! So, this Big Book of Nursery Rhymes is a real winner and something that we will treasure for a good few years to come yet. All the favourites are in here from Little Bow Peep to One, Two Buckle My Shoe, There is also a song and lullabies section with lots of fun filled songs that will have everyone singing aloud.… Read more >>>

On The Cover #27

,

 On The Cover is a feature I am going to do every(ish) Friday, Where I pick one book cover that sticks out, is really interesting or just beautiful. I think the cover of a book is very important, it’s the first thing a person sees and some of the time it’s the reason why a person will pick a book up and read the back. I will just pick a book that catches my eye from throughout the week.

 So come on Book Cover Lovers, share with me your favourite book covers.
