    1. Woo Hoo! I won a copy of this book! Can't wait to bust it open :) Thank you Mother Mouse and GoodReads!Ok, I picked this up on Saturday from the mailbox and read it out loud on the drive to my brother-in-law's house. We all got a good laugh over many of the poems (by all I mean the 10yr old, 5yr old and us parents). I was a little confused by the fact that sometimes the original poem was included but sometimes not. And there are only so many nursery rhymes to parody so there were lots of repeat [...]


    2. What a fun little book of nursery rhymes for the computer geek in all of us! My favorite - Hickory Dickory Dare! Who can't relate to the blue screen of death?


    3. I can remember when the ending for URLs was created and opened up the internet to commercial sites. The internet, though not exactly new technology was new technology to the average person. In college we had access to the sort of connections we now have in our homes, work, hotels and coffee houses. Around the same time, the poems in eNursery Rhymes were first written.The first computer I had and truly enjoyed using was a Mac Classic. It had a whopping 40 megabyte hard drive. I thought I would n [...]


    4. I won this book about a week ago and got it in the mail today. I wasn't really looking forward to reading it but I did think that it might be cute. So I just finished reading it and I was a little surprised by it. I did find the re-written nursery rhymes to be cute, and the animations that were in the book were very computer oriented. I do not see these nursery rhymes as replacing the originals, and I don't know that these versions are the ones that I would want to teach my children. As I was re [...]


    5. I thought this book would be a collection of cute rhymes to help teach kids about computers (or help adults remember important concepts). Instead, what I found was a rewrite of nursery rhymes with a few computer terms thrown in such as "Do you know the muffin fan that keeps hot chips cool". Frankly, I didn't find it very funny and it certainly wasn't educational.


    6. I'm a fan of folklore, urban legends, popular traditions, and nursery rhymes, so I was interested to see what the author might do to update Mother Goose. I'm sorry to say that the rhymes were only mildly entertaining, and the production level of the book wasn't good. The illustrations were amateur and pixellated, and the whole thing came off looking a bit cheap and unprofessional.


    7. I loved this reinterpretation of the classic nursery rhymes. My wife, not being as avid an IT geek as myself was less tickled.
