Little Kid Reaction
My kids loved the humor - and reading this over and over again. My daughter loves how funny it is when the characters get mixed up. She likes seeing the characters in the wrong stories, especially the pages that describe everything going awry. For my son (6), it was the silliness of the characters ending up in different stories. His favorite was when Miss Muffet gets embarrassed in Hickory Dickory Dock.

I knew my children would enjoy this book but I was not expecting my three year old to love it as much as she did. She requested that we read the book multiple times a day for several consecutive weeks.
Big Kid Reaction
I liked the creativity of this book. It helped my kids see nursery rhymes in a new way and understand consequences from their actions affect other people.
Pros:

Hilarity ensues when Miss Muffet tries to fit into other nursery rhymes! The story funny, creative, and will be asked for a lot!

Cons:

Some of the sentences were written with incorrect grammar (e.g., ending with prepositions) and that was distracting for me.
