This is is a cumulative tale (kind of like The House that Jack Built) and it is also a rebus story which uses pictures to replace some of the words in the story. These types of stories are FANTASTIC for preschoolers and early readers. The repetition and rhyming are one bonus, but when pictures replace words in a story, they help the child to follow along which means they can help “read” part of the story which gets them engaged and excited about reading.
