This was absolutely a waste of my time, I thought it was kinda dumb. Accompanied By Color Cartoons, These Rhymes Teach The Little Lessons Of Life Necessary For The Computer Age With An Infectious Rhythm That Makes Them Hard To Forget Recommended For Grandparents To Read To Their Grandchildren The Critics Reaction Has Been Positive The Complete Book Of ENursery Rhymes Available Separately Is Recommended By ComputerEdge Magazine , And The MidWest Book Review Calls It A Delightful Collection Of Brief Poems Deriving From The Computer And The Internet, With That Very Funny But Oh So True Recognition That Will Entertain And Delight The Reader In This Book, A Selection Of The Classic Rhymes And Color Illustrations From The McLoughlin Edition Of Mother Goose S Rhymes Chimes Are Reproduced On Pages Facing The Computer Age ENursery Rhymes And Colorized Illustrations From The Complete Book Of ENursery Rhymes By Mother Mouse The Book Closes With A Short Story That Explains Why The Mouse Ran Up The Clock I really wanted to like this it s a cute concept, and someone clearly put their heart into it The concept is that on one side of the page, there s a traditional nursery rhyme, and on the other side, there s a computer age update I will freely admit that as a graphic designer, much of my disappointment is at the layout the titles are done in Courier, a big design no no, and the illustrations on the updated pages could be polished But the poems also feel like words were chosen just to make it match the original, and the new poems don t really make sense on their own They re also pretty dated Bah, Bah Black Sheep becomes Spin Up, Floppy Disk I m not sure when I last even saw a computer with a floppy disk drive This book definitely has a unique look to it On one page is a well known nursery rhyme with accompanying delightfully old fashioned drawings and across from this traditional page is a modern rhyme in the same style as the older one but written about computer topics and with cute little colorful drawings It definitely combines crosses a generational bridge.I think a grandparent reading this to a grandchild or the other way around would be great like introducing each other to a their worlds.The addition of a contemporary take on a fairy tale was a nice addition This clever little book juxtaposes familiar old nursery rhymes with updated versions for the computer generation The rhymes are cute and catchy, if sometimes forced and awkward, but should entertain kids and computer frustrated parents alike I won this snazzy book on a goodreads giveaway.
