My mother used to read this book to me when I was little. My copy was lost in a fire a few years ago. I have been thinking about it alot over the last few months and decided to look for it. I couldn't remember the name of it so I scrolled through google images looking for it. I almost cried when I saw the familiar cover. This is one of the best collections of nursery rhymes ever. I am living proof that your children will not only enjoy this book now, but they will enjoy it 20 years from now and will want to read it to their children

I still have my copy of this book from when I was a child. I'm now in my 30s and the mother of two young children. They love it as much as I do. This is one of the best collections of Mother Goose I have ever seen. The most well know nursery rhymes are included, which is a great way to introduce your child to nursery rhymes & literature. Also, the illustrations are very friendly and memorable. If you were only going to buy one book of nursery rhymes, this should be the one.

This was my favorite book as a kid. Mom use to read this to me every night when I was five and six years old. Today, I can still remember some of the rhymes by heart!!

I know this book may seem old school with all the kids on IPads & Wii today. But children love being read to...by a real person...you. These rhyming songs are melodic to a child's ears & they will always remember them. The one I had for my kids is almost worn to shreds. I just purchased another copy for grand baby. It will comfort your child at bedtime. Guaranteed.
