What Kind of Book is The Lady with the Alligator Purse

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

An adaptation of the school-yard jump rope or clapping song “Miss Lucy Had A Baby,” the illustrations are cute, spunky and add a dynamic feel to the book. The text is pretty minimal and standard, but with great rhythm (what else would you expect from a jump rope song?) and it’s a quick read.
