    1. There are a couple of places where it s hard to keep the rhythm, but I really like this for baby storytime.


    2. I really wanted to like this book because I love Ella Fitzgerald, but I was disappointed It seems to show a white girl losing her basket, a black girl finding the basket, and the white girl saying that the black girl took her basket The black girl is depicted in a urban environment than the white girl At the end is a spread with both girls and two baskets, one for each, but it struck me as a missed opportunity to break away from stereotypes and an us vs them mindset The illustrations are beauti [...]


    3. I would not recommend this book This book was about a girl who lost her basket which was later returned Although the words could be easily read, I thought the language was inappropriate for small children Nevertheless, the illustrations were very creative However, the plot and the way the characters are potrayed seemed to be sterotypical.

    5. This book is a jazz redo of the classing children s rhyme The illustrations are eye catching and bold, and I took the extra step to buy the Ella Fitzgerald version of the song on iTunes to play to my students after reading it.Another book enhanced by audio





    6. Cool pics doesn t really work as an illustrated story for kids, but I still kinda liked it Particularly on the back of my son s love for Ella Fitzgerald s version of Old McDonald
