A noteworthy review of Favorite Mother Goose Rhymes from Children's Bookwatch on April 1, 2010
Mother Goose rhymes are universally popular because of their simple rhyming words coupled with basic rhythms. Now they have been produced in an eight volume series with vibrantly colorful images that make them ideal for use with preschool through second grade children. This simply outstanding series includes Baa, Baa, Black Sheep; Hey Diddle Diddle; Hickory, Dickory, Dock; Little Bo Peep; Little Miss Muffet; Old King Cole; One, Two Buckle My Shoe; and This Little Piggy. Each 16-page title has a reinforced library binding for an extended shelf life, along with an introduction to its author and illustrator, as well as an information section on where to find out more about the featured rhymes. Although each title is available individually ($21.36 List / $14.95 Library), both school and community libraries would be well advised to acquire the entire set for their young students and patrons.
