PAT-A-CAKE is a fun collection of nursery rhymes. Each page features a nursery rhyme plus cute illustrations of babies along the theme. For instance, Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary shows a young child watering the flowers mentioned in the rhyme. Most of the rhymes will be familiar to parents, but there are some which are new to me to add some interest. Each rhyme is also accompanied by some instructional text of ways to make it more interactive. As an example, Little Jack Horner instructs readers to mime eating when he is eating the pie, put thumb down when he sticks his into the pie and then up when he pulls out the plum. These fun details add to the reading experience.

What I loved: This is a really comprehensive collection of nursery rhymes, many very short and great for young attention spans. The board book pages make it easy for young children to turn and explore the images on their own. The babies shown throughout are very diverse and add to the overall appeal. I appreciate that while many are recognizable, there are also a few more obscure rhymes included to add some new poems to the repertoire. This is a collection with high appeal to young children.

Final verdict: PAT-A-CAKE is a delightful collection of nursery rhymes that will charm infants and toddlers. With cute illustrations and so many rhymes to choose from, there's a little bit of something for everyone inside.
