This hand-picked collection of classic nursery rhymes, all delicately and painstakingly illustrated by Salley Mavor, who is reknown for her incredibly detailed fabric and cloth scenes.It took Mavor ten years to develop her own fabric relief technique to a level where she felt comfortable even considering illustrating a book. Now, Mavor embroiders and sews illustrations, each scene taking nearly a month to complete. In this book, Mavor renders a new and visionary nursery rhyme world with precision and intricacy for many a generation to treasure for years and years to come.

I don't know if my son (age 2) enjoys listening to nursery rhymes as much as I like reading them? This book is full of plenty of rhymes alongside some gorgeous pictures. Our favorite was one two buckle my shoe but with plenty more to choose from this makes for a good book to read over a couple nights.

This book was returned on Feb 19 pursuant to a hold request. Why is it still showing up under my checked out list?

Beautiful, beautiful stitched illustrations paired with nursery rhymes. The selected rhymes are grouped together to form a sort of theme for each page. Really well done, a lovely book.
