" I really enjoyed this book, although it was just a review of nursery rhymes that I remenber from childhood. It is a great book to use when teaching students about poetry anf rhymes; and also good for bedtime stories. The artwork in this book was amazing! " said.

" WONDERFUL illustrations. I absolutely loved reading these to my little girl and she loved the pictures. Not only did it bring me up to speed on all the nursery rhymes I didn't know, but the illustrations will stay with me forever. This is on my list of books to buy. " said.

" This book is beautiful! We originally checked it out from the library, but then Santa brought it to Andrew for Christmas because we loved it so much. The illustrations are just gorgeous on the huge pages. We can sit through a whole reading of this book, which is quite a feat of attention span for an 18-month-old. " said.

" Just as gorgeous as Jenn said! This is a sumptuous oversize book, with thick paper, bright colors, and full-page paintings featuring animals (Yankee Doodle is a chipmunk!) and children of various ethnicities. Definitely warrants further study, especially as Scott Gustafson lists influences such as N.C. Wyeth, Arthur Rackham, Norman Rockwell, and Maxfield Parrish (favorites of mine, too!). " said.

" This collection of 45 Mother Goose rhymes includes an index organized by the first line in the rhyme. With large pages, both the words and illustrations are easy for young children to see. Beautiful acrylic paint illustrations bring the rhymes to life and make this book (though maybe not at all once) perfect for a read aloud. Positively reviewed in SLJ, No other reviews found " said.

" These 45 rhymes contain some of my favorite Mother Goose. One rhyme is illustrated on a two page spread giving direct focused attention for young children. It will take an adult to hold this oversized title, but afterall isn't that the point, a child feeling safe and secure in loving arms and being read to. Mother Goose is somewhat out of fashion, but is highly instructive in all types of sounds and rhymes that a child needs to hear to prepare to read. " said.

Summary: A collection of 45 Mother Goose rhymes.

Review: The bright, colorful illustrations in this collection of Mother Goose rhymes will delight any child - and many adults as well. The anthology includes many familiar rhymes as well as some that were completely unfamiliar to me. There were also a few verses of songs such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" that I had never heard before. Take a whimsical voyage with this lovely tome.

SLJ says: "This selection of 45 mostly well-known rhymes showcases lavish illustrations that are perfect for sharing with a group"
Children's Literature says: "The illustrations are also full of humor and whimsy"
" said.

"Very rarely do I come across a book of nursery rhymes that I actually like. Since I first learned most of them through the spoken word and not a book, I have a certain image cemented in my head of EXACTLY how that nursery rhyme should look. This almost always leads to disappointment, because I want everything to have that enchanted quality that's going on in my head, and it hardly every happens.

This book comes pretty close to perfect for me. I love the large, classical illustrations and the mix of fantasy, reality, and everything in between. And Humpty Dumpty is just as snooty as I imagined him to be, which makes my day.
