Little Bo-Peep

by Tracey Campbell Pearson

This short baby book illustrates a familiar nursery rhyme by turning it into a little storyline about a child who should be sleeping but drops her stuffed toys (sheep) out of the crib and then cries until mom and dad come to retrieve them for her. It's simple, clever and effective.

I've seen another one that featured the rhyme Diddle diddle dumpling/my son John in the same fashion. I like how it makes old-time rhymes something more familiar, applicable to a child's own life.
