Yankee Doodle

Dr. Richard Shackburg
woodcuts by Ed Emberley 1965

Another Yankee Doodle book but this time with fantastic wood cut illustrations by Ed Emberley. I like how in one of the verses of this version "Jemima" is a girl and in Kellogg's it's a dog! There's also a recipe for Hasty Pudding which we may or may not try to make this year. And yes, when I read this I lapse into singing!

If you like Emberley's artwork, check out this blog post which shows some of his other books.  (Drummer Hoff is the only other book of his that we have).
