Have Fun Teaching Intro to debate Vintage Kids' Books My Kid Loves: Counting Rhymes Counting Rhymes Art Seiden ~ Grosset & Dunlap, 1959 First off, I wanted to mentioned that when I went to read one of my favorite blogs this morning, Kickcan & Conkers, she mentioned another blogger named Hazel Terry and when I clicked over to her site, I instantly fell in love. I know I must have visited it before, but today, one of many reasons for my instant infatuation is the fact that she owns an original edition of the Ted Hughes book, Nessie The Mannerless Monster... oh my god oh my god oh my god. So full of awesome in so many ways. That said, today I'll share a tasty treat of nursery rhymes... perfect for the baby or emerging reader and illustrated by the tremendous Art Seiden.
