Romeo & Juliet for Children (Play)

adorable color illustrations by Annie Kubler. "Sheet music" on the back cover. Condition: NEW 2003 Child's Play hardcover (board book), 6th printing. Light shelf wear. Content: This charming board book is beautifully illustrated with colourful and captivating pictures which simply ooze fun and laughter. The familiar rhyme means children will love acting this song out with parents or siblings, ensuring that your house will be full of the sound of laughter. For children just beginning to understand that marks on paper have meaning, this sturdy board book links literacy with other experiences by providing the words and actions for a familiar song. The funny verses are included too ('If you see a crocodile, don't forget to scream!'), together with endearing pictures of babies from a range of ethnic groups acting out the song together. And on the outside back cover is the music - useful for adult accompanists, but also a good introduction for children to the idea that there is more than one set of written symbols in the world. These are eternally popular and enjoyable action nursery rhyme, and they have been given a fun treatment in these new baby board books by Annie Kubler. Featuring adorable happy babies, these books are sure to appeal to the under threes. "Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream," Come on, you know the words, "merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream." But did you know there were more words? "Rock, rock, rock your boat, gently down the stream. If you see a crocodile, don't forget to scream!" "Row, row, row your boat, gently to the shore. If you see a lion, don't forget to roar!" I have to admit that my knowledge for this song only extended to the first two lines and I was delighted to find that there was more of it. Still, even six lines of a song doesn't seem much with which to fill a book, yet Annie Kubler's illustrations turn this simple song into a great action book for babies and toddlers.
