    1. I love this book! The drawings are so engaging and the poems are memorable. It made me wish I had grown up in some small town in New England. When I was younger I would try to find other books by Clyde and Wendy Watson, but I didn't often come across them. I should try inter-library loans now that it is so easy to search. It used to bother me that there wasn't a clear connection between the poems. The works are set between the framework of a father telling stories to his kids. As an adult I acce [...]

    2. Lots of fun, quirky rhymes with detailed illustrations. My two-year-old's favorite is, of course,"Dilly, Dilly, Picalilli, tell me something very silly.Well, there was a chap, his name was Bert, he ate the buttons off his shirt."He repeats it a lot. And then falls over giggling and saying,"That's silly!"We have a songbook that goes with it: Father Fox's Feast Of Songs

    3. Funny, folk-y poems, but the pictures really bring the whole thing together. They provide the context for the poems Father Fox tells, and add visual humor. It's great!The poems don't all have the same rhythm, so that's something to be aware of if you plan to read it aloud.

    4. Father Fox’s Pennyrhymes is an old picture book, first published in 1971, and one we had in our house when my sisters and I were growing up. I have very fond memories of it and got it for Christmas this year. I was a little worried that it wouldn’t hold up, as it’s been over 40 years since the first publication, but I think that it does. What I remember most fondly about it, the amazing and intricate illustrations are still just as beautiful to an adult’s eye.There isn’t really much of [...]

    5. Cute lil' rhymes with fun illustrations. Everything flows fun off the tongue. I can see little ones getting a kick out of it. I was shaking my head though at the illustration of the little fox girl saying, "I'm going to marry a rich farmer." But, that does come from it's time, 1971.

    6. Dilly dilly picalilly. Tell me something very silly.There was a chap, his name was Bert. He ate the buttons off his shirt. Silly Bert.

    7. I love the old fashioned backwoods style pictures as well as the fun, silly poetry. Toddlers and beginning readers alike will love this book!
