Horn Book Winner: Pocketful of Posies by Salley Mavor

Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes

Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes has just been announced as the Picture Book 2011 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Medal Winner. None of the other titles are folklore or fairy tale related but nursery rhymes always count and this book is gorgeous so I had to share here. (It is also currently 60% off at Amazon for $8.80 probably due to the award announcement, but I'm not sure.) I love nursery rhymes but this version has quickly become a favorite. Mavor's needlework illustrations are charming and fit the rhymes so very well.

So here's some images to help you appreciate this one:
