PreSchool-Grade 2–Doyle strings together traditional skipping, ball-bouncing, and counting-out rhymes to create a boisterous bedtime story. The 10 O'Leary children are tucked into a large bed by their parents. As soon as their mother and father leave the room, however, they begin to bounce on the bed to a series of rhythmic rhymes ("Ibble obble,/Blue bottle,/Ibble obble OUT!" or "Red, white, and blue,/The cat's got flu,/The dog's got chicken pox,/And OUT goes you!"). Each poem ends with one of the children landing on the floor. Eventually, every young O'Leary is "OUT," and then the grown-ups come in to join the action. In the end, the little ones return to bed. Some of the rhymes are based on traditional Irish chants, and some are a bit nonsensical, but all are great fun. Featuring crisp, bold colors, the collage and mixed-media illustrations show this family enjoying a rip-roaring good time. The tongue-twisting text will have kids laughing out loud.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL
