An up-to-date cumulative variation on The House That Jack Built features Jessie and rings with lines such as "...And her mom said, / 'I'll buy you a skirt that won't show the dirt, / to go with the socks from the local shops, / to go with the shoes from Grandpa'..." The final, full-color collage shows high-spirited Jessie's preference for jeans as she dashes away on her skateboard! The 11 1/2" x 9 1/2" format is perfect for group use. (Ages 3-7)
