Fleas, Flies, and Friars reviewed

Fleas, Flies, and Friars by Nicholas Orme was reviewed at the Reading Room. Here’s an excerpt: “Orme’s book will evoke memories of the reader’s past, recalling the nursery rhymes, carols, charms, riddles, and codes of behavior that they learned through sayings whether it was about learning to tie their shoe strings into a bow or adhering to certain traditions of the yearly holidays. Fleas, Flies and Friars is a book that everyone can relate to, giving readers a broader understanding of why children’s literature is an important aspect of one’s upbringing.”

It was also reviewed at GoodReads and at the Allure of Books blog.
