I love Mother Goose. She is full of magic and song. I remember my own mother reading her rhymes to me over and over again. A little primer on poetry it was. The McElderry Book of Mother Goose contains revered and rare rhymes compiled and illustrated by Petra Mathers. Offbeat, while remaining faithful to familiar classics, Mathers keeps us on the edge of our seat from Wibbleton and Wobbleton, to Little Miss Muffett. If your Mother Goose is in as many tattered pieces as ours is, this refreshing volume might be just the replacement you are looking for.
