Hickory, Dickory, Dock: & Other Mother Goose Rhymes Reviews
Reading Log #2:Title: Hickory, Dickory, Dock & Other Mother Goose RhymesAuthor: James MarshallGenre: Nursery & Mother Goose RhymesTheme(s): Nursery Rhyme/Mother GooseOpening line/sentence: Hickory, dickory, dock, the mouse ran up the clock.Brief Book Summary: This book offers patterns and sly humor for children and parents to appreciate. Each couple of pages tells a different nursery rhyme with pictures matching the words. Moreover, this book is thorough Professional Recommendation/Review #1: Hickory Dickory Dock," "Little Boy Blue," the first verse of "Old Mother Hubbard" and "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush," "Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater," "Pussy cat, Pussy cat, Where Have You Been," "Old King Cole," and "When Pussy cat Has Got the Gout" are presented in this board book, in a size just right for small hands. Marshall was a master at capturing humor, and these illustrations show both the subtle and the not-so-subtle. This is one book parents will enjoy reading over and over. Little mice cavort throughout the book and will captivate the young listener. Droll expressions and humorous scenes will make the adults laugh. The eight selections, with one illustration per rhyme, were taken from James Marshall's Mother Goose, a picture book originally published in 1979. (Sharon Salluzzo, Children's Literature)Professional Recommendation/Review #2:First published in James Marshall's Mother Goose (1979) and illustrated in his signature style, Marshall's Hickory, Dickory, Dock & Other Mother Goose Rhymes and Hey Diddle Diddle have been broken out as hand-sized board books. Both offerings crackle with Marshall's sly humor; an electric orange, green and yellow palette adds zip. (Publishers Weekly)Response to Two Professional Reviews: I thoroughly agree with both reviews because they accurately depict the level of understanding in this book. Both reviews note Marshall’s humor and behavior towards each story, accurately explaining why each nursery rhyme is noteworthy.Evaluation of Literary Elements: James Marshall compels the reader to think about the words, and how they rhyme, and relate those words to the pictures on the page. The colors are slightly dull; however, this book is almost forty years old. It was a proper color scheme during its time.Consideration of Instructional Application: Using this book with younger children can evoke their connections between home life and school life. As a child, I loved nursery rhymes therefore utilizing this to help children maybe calm down in the classroom might be helpful.
Nice classic nursery rhymes. It is always nice to pass on a piece of your own childhood to your children.
