One of the world's great picture book artists presents a delightful collection of playtime rhymes, illustrated with characteristic brilliance - and offering easy-to-follow instructions for playing along. In this sumptuous volume, leading children's book illustrator Michael Foreman showcases scores of the best-loved, most exuberant action rhymes, each one acted out by an appealing little bear and a colorful supporting cast of children, animals, and others! This beautiful book is bursting with more than seventy rhymes, including: A sailor went to sea, sea, sea Here we go round the mulberry bush Hush little baby, don't say a word Old MacDonald had a farm Ring-around-the-rosy The farmer in the dell The itsy bitsy spider You put your right arm in And, oh yes - the actions to accompany these rollicking rhymes are spelled out at the back of the book, so there's no excuse for not joining in!
