Acerca de


A collection of fourteen original verses, based on the Mother Goose rhyme "Diddle, Diddle dumpling," introduces a new cast of characters, from Jake who eats pancakes to Ann who milks her cow, accompanied by vibrant woodcut illustrations. By the author of Old Black Fly.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-From the very first "Yellow, yellow sunup,/My son Ed,/Up he jumps/From out of bed," to the last familiar "Diddle diddle dumpling," this book is a feast for the eyes and ears. Aylesworth amplifies the simple nursery classic with a rainbow of rich, descriptive verses on additional names, evoking all of the five senses in the process. The rhymes are enhanced by an exceptional layout using brilliant woodcuts done with brightly colored oils. Each double-page spread features a full-page illustration on the left, with the rhyme facing it. A cast of multicultural children is shown joyfully carrying out various farm chores throughout the day. The singsong rhythm should have the same immediate appeal to children as Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault's Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (S.&S., 1989), Bill Martin Jr.'s Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (1983), and Aylesworth's Old Black Fly (1992, both Holt). It will be a hit in story time, and could also serve as a creative writing stimulus to children making up similar rhymes to fit their own names. Beautifully integrated in text and design, this is a book to savor and enjoy again and again.
