New series from Silver Dolphin Books: Woodworks Nursery Rhymes - Old MacDonald & Wheels On the Bus [Reviews & Giveaway - USA/CANADA]

My thoughts:  Silver Dolphin is fast becoming a favorite of mine for durable, interesting, educational, play-worthy, and readable books and play sets. This new series with a delightful little wooden vehicle (school bus and farm tractor), picturesque play mat, fold out building, and charming little board book for each set will guarantee hours of fun play. The little wooden vehicle and board book are small enough for little hands to play with and carry around to their heart's content.

The illustrations are "little people" charming and the simplicity of every aspect of the sets makes this a product that parents will like having their children possess.


Featuring the old nursery rhyme songs that have been favorites of kids for so many years the words of The Wheels On the Bus and Old MacDonald' Farm can be simply read aloud or taught as a song. The book does not include audio accompaniment - but then, most adults will already know these old tunes from their own childhoods.

The play mat is of foldable, plastic that is thin but still durable. The set up is simple enough for young children and it all packs back into the charming carry case that includes a "rope" handle.

I highly recommend these as truly play-worthy.
