A charming series of songs, illustrated with silhouettes. Bodenheim was born in Amsterdam where she was trained at the Rijksacademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, and then she followed lessons from the painter Jan Veth. Her illustrations (often for children's books) were generally black & white silhouettes but she is also known for color lithography.
