One, Two, Buckle My Shoe by Jane Cabrera

Here is an entirely new version of a nursery rhyme favorite. With hiding chicks, numbers up to 20, and a party. What fun!

What I thought: Delightful! Cabrera has made this nursery rhyme her own with charming illustrations and new verses. I love the inclusion of all the other animals. The hiding chicks are a stroke of genius. Kids love to locate things in pictures (e.g., the mouse in 1, 2, 3 to the Zoo by Eric Carle).

Story Time Ideas: This book would be great for a Mother Goose/Nursery Rhyme story time. Would also be good for Baby Sit & Sign when we do numbers.
