You won't be able to resist acting out these dozens of rhymes and games for very young children - an endearing, annotated collection sure to become a family heirloom.Open this delightful anthology of more than sixty lap songs, clapping games, and action rhymes and discover the perfect book for babies and toddlers - and their grateful parents and caregivers. Featuring familiar favorites such as "Goosey, Goosey, Gander" and "I'm a Little Teapot" as well as lesser-known rhymes like "Harry Whistle" and "In Went the Prairie Dog," this comprehensive collection includes directions for play, historical tidbits, and fourteen simple musical arrangements for piano and guitar. Masterfully selected and edited by Jane Yolen, whom NEWSWEEK calls "America's Hans Christian Andersen," THIS LITTLE PIGGY is lavishly illustrated in charming detail by Will Hillenbrand. The bonus CD contains fifteen minutes of lively music and vocals, based on Adam Stemple's original arrangements, including "Dance to Your Daddy", "I'm a Little Teapot," and many others.
