When you first open the book, the folk motifs fill your eyes with primary colors in soft pencil. As you read through the well known story, the pictures bring alive the song so that you are ready to play the game that is described in the back of the book. The end papers show the song and complement the whole concept. What a delightful rendition of this favorite song and game!
