More About Iona Archibald Opie & Rosemary Wells

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Iona Opie has dedicated her life to collecting and preserving children's rhymes as art form. She says that she starts every morning with a rhyme. "Nursery rhymes are good for you. I just open a nursery rhyme book at random. This morning I read:
'Taffy was born on a
moon-shiny night.
His head in a pipskin,
his heels upright.'"
In a partnership with her late husband, Peter Opie, she has edited many acclaimed books for children's folklore, including THE OXFORD DICTIONARY OF NURSERY RHYMES.
Rosemary Wells is the author and illustrator of more than 60 books for young readers. She has won many awards for her work, including more than 20 ALA Notable Book citations, THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW Best Illustrated Book of the Year Award, and the BOSTON GLOBE-HORN BOOK Award. About Mother Goose, she says, "Mother Goose is a real culture. It's the real words of people who lived long ago. These rhymes are a celebration of the English language it's our history and it's wonderful." Rosemary Wells lives in Briarcliff Manor, New York.

Iona Opie was born in 1923.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Gorgeous illustrations  Dec 11, 2007
We received this book as a baby shower gift, and several times since then, I've given it to others at their baby showers. The illustrations in this book are so beautiful. I wish some of them were available as frame-able art for children's rooms.
politically correct garbage  Dec 1, 2007
The switching of "What little girls/little boys are made of" is asinine. While I am not a proponent of burning books, I might as well have burned the money I spent on this one. How disappointing. I recognize that the argument to keep politics out of nursery rhymes has been disputed ad nauseum, but that's really the point isn't it? If you, like me, prefer that your kids learn the rhymes the same way they've been passed down, then avoid this book. That one change has rendered all else suspect. However, if you are down with feminism rah rah, here's the book for you. But why not call it, "Here comes Androgynous Goose." After all, the image of a maternal fowl spouting gibberish promotes a terrible stereotype. One that the author might well wish to avoid. In fine, this book lays a big fat egg. Thanks. You've been great. Don't forget to tip the bartender.
beautiful book  Mar 27, 2007
Beautiful book, but most of the material is completely unfamiliar to me, and I expected it to be more common poems / nursery rhymes. I think I was looking for the other one by the same author
Sanitized Pablum  Oct 17, 2005
Why did she shorten a number of the poems/ditties? This reads like my radio scanning the first 10 seconds of each station. These poems were written with lots of verses, why not include them?

And I don't particularly enjoy the sanitizing of the What Are Little Boys Made Of poem. Why not read it in the original? Wouldn't it provide an interesting opportunity to discuss gender stereotypes to appropriately aged children, instead of dumbing it down for them?

I did like My Kindergarten, though.
Love it, love it, love it !!!  Oct 13, 2005
We bought this book for my son when he was around 15 months old. He would spend hours carrying this book from one person to the next, wanting it to be read over and over. The repetition, the rhyming, and the order of each chapter seemed to just resonate with him. He absolutely loved it and still does. He is almost five years old now and will still take it out of his collection for bedtime reading. It is a little young for his comprehension level now, but he loves to recite the rhymes and finds comfort in its familiarity. I recommend this book wholeheartedly, especially for ages one to three.
