"Lobel, Arnold. (1986). Arnold Lobel’s Mother Goose for Babies. New York, NY: Alfred A. Knopf.

Annotation: For babies to preschoolers. Arnold Lobel, whose artwork is inviting to young children, illustrates this book as well as writing it. Lobel utilizes earth tones, such as; greens, yellows, and browns, to calm his readers and to balance the excitement in his text. The board book begins with the popular nursery rhyme, “Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?”, and ends with Lobel creating his own nursery rhymes that are humorous and fun for very young children. The fun rhythm and flow of the nursery rhymes is a nice way to expose young children to new words and build their development of language.

Personal Reflection: I love Arnold Lobel’s illustrations and the quality of his written text. He has always been when of my favorite authors and illustrators and I own several of his works. This particular board book is a favorite of my sixteen-month-old son. He loves the funny words and sounds in the rhymes, for example: “fiddle-de-dee,” “diddlety,” “fishy,” “hop,” and “gulp.” Additionally, the colors are soothing and not over stimulating for younger readers.
