You don't often see nursery rhyme books these days so I was excited to find this book as I love reading nursery rhymes with my 3 year old. Especially ones I am familiar with or ones with a funny twist. This book had both of those things so it was a very enjoyable book to read and we had a little giggle at the jokes. From Humpty Dumpty to Old King Cole there is bound to be a rhyme you are familiar with.

The jokes are often subtle like the farmers wife chasing the three blind mice with a carving knife where Alusin Jay has merely stated something not very nice is happening to the three blind mice but if you look at the pictures you can see the farmers wife chasing the mice in their dark glasses. There is in fact lots of reading you can do from the pictures not to mention the traditional nursery rhymes you could read so this book could go off on many tangents.

You also throw in a bit of learning about each color as each page takes a new colour of the rainbow and a new nursery rhyme to discover. Although they are not the traditional colors of the rainbow no one seemed to notice enjoying the book for what it is. We really enjoyed this book and have read it several times!

I was excited to get the chance to review another of Alison Jay books. She has an awesome way with words and this book was no exception.

This book is based on nursery rhymes and colours. I was keen to see how she could incorporate nursery rhymes and was surprised that the story did not tell the whole of each nursery rhyme like many other book of the same kind. This however I found to be one of the biggest talking points with myself and my 4 year old.

Each nursery rhyme is connected to a colour (some of these colours not in your typical rainbow) and there may only be one or two lines from each rhyme. This then challenged me to remember these traditional nursery rhymes on each page with my son. It was not hard to explain the meaning behind each one by the playful illustrations that are connected from one page to the next, something that my son picked up from other Alison Jay books that we have read.

As a teacher I like to look at sentence structure and use of words and how this could be used as teaching points. In this story the colours were written in bold and there was clear rhyme on each page. I also thought that this would be a great way to teach how names have capital letters as children could pick out these word by looking for the capital letters.

Overall I think that this is another awesome book by the author and will definitely be looking at ways that this can be used further with my sons and in the classroom.
