Synopses & Reviews
The nursery rhymes which we attribute to a mythical Mother Goose are the anonymous poems which have survived hundreds of years because of their popularity with small children, and the ease with which they can be memorized. There is no fixed list of Mother Goose rhymes. There are many hundreds, and many variant forms. We have selected our favorites, which include almost all of those with wide appeal. We have illustrated each rhyme with favorite pictures from our huge library of nursery rhyme books. More than 70 illustrators are used, including Arthur Rackham, Lois Lenski, L.L. Brooke, Kate Greenaway, Frederick Richardson, Margaret Tarrant and E. Boyd Smith. We believe this edition is one of the most remarkable ever made from this still vital body of poetry.
