Description
A household name in Britain, where the actress, producer, and author has hosted some of the BBC's most popular children's programs, Floella Benjamin here presents favorite playtime songs and lullabies from 23 countries on six continents, gathering both familiar sing-a-longs and exotic folksongs previously known only through oral tradition. This beautifully illustrated treasury for readers and listeners of all ages is "a multicultural collection of 32 nursery rhymes, some of which appear in their original languages—French, German, Spanish, Norwegian, Fanti, Luganda, and Yoruba—as well as in English. The sprightly, brightly colored folk-art illustrations have a childlike quality, complementing the rhymes, which are divided into categories of lullabies, action rhymes, nature, and miscellaneous. These work well for baby or laptime story hours, as actions are clearly described."—School Library Journal
