Booklist Review

Ages 2^-6. Cousins has a loyal following of preschoolers who enjoy the adventures of her popular Maisy character and find her colorful, childlike art appealing. That following will certainly help sell this collection of 64 nursery rhymes, which Cousins has both chosen and illustrated. Maisy fans will recognize Cousins' bold art style, characterized by flat shapes in bright colors outlined in thick, black line, and the thoughtfully chosen roundup, including a nice variety of well-known and lesser-known rhymes, will allow educators to offer children something familiar and something new in the same sitting. Many of the rhymes offer opportunities for physical activities, such as finger plays, creating possibilities for interactive fun in story-time settings. --Lauren Peterson
