My Mother Goose: A Collection of Favorite Rhymes, Songs, and Concepts Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All your favorite nursery rhymes, songs, and concepts illustrated by popular artist David McPhail--the perfect shower, birthday, or Christmas gift for babies and toddlers.

Enter the beloved world of Mother Goose with the whimsical illustrations of David McPhail. Here classic rhymes come to life with energy, humor, and the sweetest charm. With a loveable cast of zoo and farm animals, My Mother Goose also includes concepts like opposites, colors, and early vocabulary. Give children a gift they will treasure for years to come.

Review:

"McPhail's familiar shaggy-haired toddlers and friendly animals lend themselves to this grouping of more than 60 Mother Goose rhymes. The verses flow naturally into one another. For 'Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake,' a bear baker prepares to put a cake (marked with a 'B') in the oven. On the following page, for 'Simple Simon,' a ginger-haired boy requests a pie from an alligator baker. Elsewhere, 'Little Bo-Peep' leads into the similarly ovine 'Baa, baa, black sheep,' and two bouncing children, 'Jack be nimble' and 'Little Jumping Joan,' share a spread. Short sections also introduce basic concepts that include shapes, colors, getting dressed, and methods of transportation. McPhail's welcoming world of anthropomorphic animals and adventurous children is as distinctive and cozy as ever. Ages 2 — 5. Agent: Faith Hamlin, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates."
