    1. I have admired Peter Spier's artwork for years. This book is no exception. Beginning with the old nursery rhyme: "See-saw sacradown, Which is the way to London town?,,," Spier proceeds to illustrate all of the verses of "London Bridge is Falling Down" in very detailed ink and watercolor paintings. The illustrations depict London and the Thames at about the time of the American Revolution. Spier depicts the bridge falling, the engineers planning, and the various materials that were tried but fail [...]

    2. Very nice pictures of old London accompany the lyrics. There are more lines included in this book than I knew existed!

    3. This was a real gem! The illustrations, the full song lyrics, the history! Mind blown. đŸ¤¯This was part of a list of award winning books we were working though, but I must own it. Peter Spier is already a family favorite.

    4. What a treat. I have sung the song since I can remember but I loved Peter Spier's illustrations. They really give a sense of what I think the Bridge with all of its homes and businesses would have looked like back in the day. So much fun!

    5. Absolutely delightful! I loved everything about it. The London Bridge holds such a special place in my heart, so to read the whole song and the history of the bridge was lovely.

    6. girls enjoyed but not viable for music and movement due to small size of book. also, detailed pictures require it as a lap or older child book. fun, though!
