    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 of cadence Overall, I really enjoyed the humor and advice It was a bit much to red in one sitting But this would make a great holiday gift for the computer nutter in any family.

    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

    I can remember when the.com 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 never have enough files to fill up that hard drive The machines back then were clunky and somewhat mystifying.Then by 1997 when I was trying my had at freelancing I can remember poems like the ones in eNursery Rhymes making the way into my email in box or showing up on the usenet groups I frequented.The nursery rhymes in this book and the accompanying illustrations of Mother Mouse are dated They are products of the 1990s They are a quaint look at the early days of a technology I think many of us now take for granted Without any new poems involving cell phones, PDAs, L33T speak, blogs, twitter or similar, the poems are stale.Sometimes in the book the new poem will be put side by side with the source poem The versions picked for many of these source poems are very different form the ones I learned The poems for the most part are pretty obvious to anyone who is familiar with nursery rhymes Some are barely changed save for a technical buzz world.Near the end of the book there s a glossary that would have been useful in the 1990s and might be useful in the future if technical terms fall completely out of use Right now, though, the glossary is just another sign of how out of date the poetry is.

    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 reading it I kept thinking that someone who deals with computers all the time would find these humorous than a child would find them entertaining I like the concept very much and I think it was very well executed I did enjoy reading this book, and I will probably read some of them again, but I didn t love the book, nor do I feel that it was a great book Maybe after I read it a few times my opinion will change

    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.

    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.

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