    5. In this story is about a girl, Mary has a lamb as a pet. The lamb has white wool and follows Mary where ever she goes. This story shows the relationship that Mary has with her “little lamb”. It can also have a religious twist, if you think of the lamb as Jesus.

    6. The colorful and updated illustrations of this classic song make this book great for preschool or toddler storytimes.

    7. The Mother Goose rhyme "Mary Had a Little Lamb" done in typical Tomie DePaola illustrations. In this board book some of the illustrations seem a little dark and dreary. Not one of my more favorites of dePaola's.

    10. This is classic Mary had a Little Lamb, so commenting on the actual poem is not really necessary. The poem is pretty much exactly as everyone remembers it, just without the repetitions.

I like seeing that she is excited by books.This version of Mary had a Little Lamb includes fun cartoonish drawings. I just love the lamb. The expressions on the lambs face are br [...]

    12. The text of MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB is the poem written by Sarah Josepha Hale in the 1830s, which is slightly different than the children's song still popular today. It's basically the same, but some lines might trip kids (and perhaps even their guardians up). I know it took me a second to parse "And you each gentle animal in confidence may bind, and make them follow at your call, if you are always kind."But my niece loves to sing "Mary Had a Little Lamb," so I think she'll enjoy this book. Laura [...]

    15. This would be a great sing along for younger students. I would use this book in the classroom to incorporate music in the classroom. The book has the well known musical rhyme that kids could sing along to. In the end, it tells why the little lamb followed Mary everywhere and it concluded with because Mary was kind to the lamb. This could be used to teach children that kindness goes a long way.

    16. "Mary Had a Little Lamb" is a classic poetry children's book. Mary, a little girl, goes to school and the lamb follows her. In fact, the lamb follows her everywhere. This poem is a famous nursery rhyme that is still read today. Also, students and adults sing "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in the classroom. This could be used in the classroom during a unit of poetry. This poem could be used as early as Kindergarten. As a teacher, you could also use the song for additional fun in the classroom.

    17. Mary Had a Little Lamb by Sarah Josephina Hale and Illustrated by Laura Hulliska-Beith is a fantastic extended version of Mary Had a Little Lamb. My students adored listening to the new verses that I sang after the first traditional version. While they liked the book I don't think it's one that they're going to be asking for again and again like some of my other folk song books.I recommend this book for kids 4-8

    18. It's good for children to know the old nursery rhymes and they're useful as early readers. This one gives the full version with an extra verse to the one I knew. Plus, it also gives historical information. It's worth having. It's illustrated with photographs. They're OK but not quite up to the quality I'd expect to find illustrating a picture book.

    19. I enjoyed the bit of history behind the famous song and it's author included in this edition, and as always I loved Tomie dePaola's illustrations. I've never seen Mary Had a Little Lamb thus illustrated, and it was cute to see the song/poem come to life through his drawings :)Mary Had a Little Lamb will always be a classic

    20. Love Tomie De Paola's illustrations for this classic nursery rhyme! And it's a board book too--perfect for enthusiastic little "readers." However, considering the audience, the last verse seems a bit abstruse:'And you each gentle animalIn confidence may bind,And make them follow at your call,If you are always kind.'Early start on complicated grammatical constructions? Can't hurt, I guess.

    21. I liked this book. It is just like the poem or song. You could use this book to show a visual of the song if you are trying to teach it to your students. Its about a girl who has a lamb and it followed her to school one day. The teacher sent it out of the school house where it waited all day until she got out of school. I would recommend this book to read with young children.

    22. This book is excellent for early readers especially ones who like music. This book gives pictures to the normal song of Mary Had a Little Lamb. The illustration is not my favorite which is why I would give it a three. It has the stitching or cloth illustration which is not my personal favorite type.

    23. I like this book. I picked it because of how cute the picture was on the front. The pictures are not the typical pictures you would see in a children's book, as they are not animated. This book is just they traditional "Mary Had A Little Lamb" story. This book is just a fun book for kids to read.

    24. This book was an older poem brought to new light. I liked this story and think it would be a good book to allow children to read on their own. Also using this book and other nursery rhymes would be fun in a classroom.

    25. This book uses the classic nursery rhyme Mary Had a Little Lamb, attributed to Sarah Josepha Hale, paired with lovely illustrations by Laura Huliska-Beith. An excellent book to use during a nursery rhyme unit, particularly in Kindergarten.

    26. The classic rhyme that we all learn as children in its entire length, accompanied by the Tomie dePaola's inimitable illustrations. We really enjoyed the book, especially the historical depictions of children in school.

    27. Instead of pictures of fabric. It would have been better to have a real fabric book. Not sure if that is possible. But this story is not really about a new twist on an old tale. It's about crafty images.
