Wildly fast shipping. Old book but it is in mint condition. The seller was very sweet and personable, seemed genuinely interested in where the book was going, and the joy it'd bring to a new generation. I'd do business again without a second thought.

This is the nursery rhyme book I grew up with. Mine is pretty fragile and I wanted one in better condition to share with my children. This book is in perfect condition! It arrived in just a few days and was packaged with great care. My kids love the book. Thank you so much!

The best part of this book is the photography. It is gorgeous. However, you should know that the project instructions are rather short and (I felt) omitted a lot of detail. Also you should know that this book is very short, especially for the price. I just looked through my stack of art technique books that should compare to this. Every one of them is at least twice as long as this book. At the same price point. So that was a disappointment. It took me almost no time to read through the book, and I really only feel that I've learned two new things. However, the photos are good for inspiration. But I do have a minor nit to pick with the photos. After discussing how important it is to have no bubbles with organic materials, there is a photo with Queen Anne's lace showing a number of bubbles in the resin.
