" It's Mother Goose. It looks nice. " said.

" Mother Goose rhymes illustrated by Ruth Sanderson, wonderful. " said.

" What a lovely book. As with all of Ms. Sanderson's books, the pictures are simply breathtaking. It contains all the traditional, well known nursery rhymes, and more. I wish I had this book when I was a little kid! " said.

" The illustrations in this book are obviously influenced by Victorian art. The characters are wearing costumes from the 1800s. There are lots of lovely fairies done in a traditional style. The images are wonderful echoes of the rhymes themselves. " said.

" This is a great collection of traditional nursery rhymes, but also with a great mix of newer ones that kids might not have heard before. The pictures that accompany the nursery rhymes are what makes this book a great new creation and choice, for a type of book that could be overdone. " said.

"1. Genre: Picture Book/Mother Goose

2. Summary: Take a tumble with Jack and Jill, get tongue-tied with Peter Piper, or become dizzy going round the Mulberry bush in this complete collection of Mother Goose tales and other fine nursery rhymes.

3. Critique:
a. One of the greatest strengths of this title is the use of detailed illustrations.

b. On pages four and five the reader’s eye is directed across the page, from left to right, by the images that have been illustrated along the bottom. The Crooked Man, Humpty Dumpty, three little kittens, and the dish and the spoon all invite the reader to continue past the introduction of this story and into the world of Mother Goose and other nursery rhymes.

c. Sanderson uses illustrations to connect one nursery rhyme to another, by carrying the image of one tale over onto the next page with a second tale. An example of this can be seen on pages 30 and 31. The old woman who lived under a hill is standing outside of the door to her home dancing while an elf plays music for her. The trees from surrounding her home and the path on which she stands both carry over onto the next page where the crooked man is walking with his crooked stick next to his crooked cat.

4. Curriculum Connection: This book would be imperative when teaching preschoolers and kindergarteners about nursery rhymes. Many of these tales would also be excellent tools for teaching children in first and second grades about rhyming schemes.
" said.

" I love this version of Mother Goose. The pictures are so wonderfully illustrated. A definite family favorite. " said.

" Absolutely beautiful illustrations. I could look at them every day and not get bored. I loved how Hollyhocks showed up in many of the garden pictures. They are one of my favourite flowers. When I have grandchildren I will want to share this book with them. Just lovely. There is a great selection of nursery rhymes in this book as well. " said.
