About the Author

Jane Cabrera is the author and illustrator of many beloved books for young children, including Baa, Baa, Black Sheep; There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe; and Row, Row, Row Your Boat. She is best known for her exuberant versions of classic nursery rhymes and her bright, kid-friendly paint and collage illustrations. She lives in Devon in England.


"The charm of this adaptation of the traditional folk song lies in the cheerful acrylic illustrations, which feature adorably bright-eyed and animated creatures prancing about in the snow . . . Lots of appeal for young children."--School Library Journal

"The vibrancy and warmth of Cabrera's textured acrylic paintings and the jovial rhyming lines make this a welcome picture book adaptation of the classic song."--The Horn Book

"This innovative version of the old song should appeal readily to today's children since the animals and their actions are all recognizable. The new words are quite easy to sing, and the musical notation is included in the final pages. . . . this bright, sunny variation is good fun for young children, particularly as a sing-along experience."--Kirkus Reviews

"The old English folk song gets new legs in this spirited adaptation that showcases the cutie-pie animals that have romped through other Cabrera books. The author's tweaking of the original . . . makes this more relatable to the youngest readers, while wizened older readers will enjoy the updates."--Booklist
