The House That Jack Built
By Diana Mayo
Published By Barefoot Books

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

     This is the dog
     That worried the cat
     That chased the rat,
     That ate the malt
     That lay in the house that Jack built.
     The House That Jack Built is a traditional rhyme brought to us in bright lively text and pictures by Diana Mayo. The story starts out simply, showing us the house that Jack has built, and with each turn of the page a new animal or character is added to the story line. Its use of repetitive wording makes this an old favorite amongst children who can easily remember and join in, in the reading of the verses. Diana Mayo has illustrated her version using bright, colorful, full of action pictures, that are pleasing to a child and that will captivate them for many hours. When reading this book to a group of children, be prepared to hear them laugh and join in! This book is perfect for beginner readers as the repetitive use of the words make it easy to memorize, which is exactly how early readers learn to read. I recommend this story for ages 2-8, and younger children will enjoy the bright colors that the author has used to tell the story. Older children will enjoy reading this book to their friends and parents.
     This is a favorite in our library as I am sure it will be in yours!
