Nursery Rhyme Time

My boy reads Mother Goose the way others do sudoku.
Neither activity makes much sense to me. But I knew
he'd love this collection of comics by by cartoonists
(including Jules Feiffer) illustrating nursery and nonsense
rhymes. He read/sang his way through the volume in about
half an hour last night, no prompting required. He skipped
some, I don't know why, reread others, ditto.
Your eleven year old may not share this fascination, but
this is a great collection for younger readers. Sweet, 
quirky, and funny it reminds me of a lot of kids I know-
especially my own.
