We thought this was a really funny book. My mammy and granny knew most of the rhymes already. My brother really liked “Muc Muc Muc”. I think he liked to say those words in a funny voice. He is three and he likes funny words.
We sang Mary “Mac, Mac, Mac” which was really fun. The rhymes are easy to say and some of them have funny words too like Skinny Malink.
I like the pictures in the book, they are different from other books because there is only one thing in them. I like the colour on the pages too. It makes the book interesting, although I prefer pink and purple.
Each rhyme is short so that means that it is really easy to learn them. This is a really fun book, it looks fun, the rhymes are funny and it was fun to listen to my granny talk about when she used to say the rhymes long ago.
My favourite rhyme is “Sally go Round the Moon” because she dances in the sky around the chimney pots with the moon.
