40.This Little Piggy: Lap Songs, Finger Plays, Clapping Games and Pantomime Rhymes (Candlewick, 2006)
Jane Yolen & Will Hillenbrand
(Birth-Grade 2)

This delightful anthology of more than sixty lap songs, clapping games, and action rhymes is perfect for babies and toddlers and their parents and caregivers. Featuring such familiar favorites as “Goosey, Goosey, Gander” and “I’m a Little Teapot” as well as lesser-known rhymes like “Harry Whistle” and “In Went the Prairie Dog,” and including directions for play, historical information, and simple musical arrangements for piano and guitar, this comprehensive collection is destined to be a family heirloom.

“Given the collection's broad scope, families will inevitably emerge with new playtime standbys, and its many aesthetic rewards offer ample motivation to keep turning the pages.”

Starred Review, Booklist

“Hillenbrand has framed the rhymes with lovely mixed-media pictures in an array of sherbet pastel colors…”

Starred Review, School Library Journal

“Hillenbrand's illustrations are a delight, featuring a largely porcine cast, soft colors and playful borders echoing the monkey business within.”
