Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins
When Mother Goose cannot get her goslings to stop wandering off in different directions when they should be waddling behind her in a row, she entertains them with rhymes to keep them focused. Soon, other geese moms follow suit and eventually, when all the birds are using the rhymes to keep their chicks in line, a wise old heron writes them down for the sake of children everywhere. With this entertaining explanation of the origin of Mother Goose's rhyming poems, author Allison Green begins her collection of the famous nursery rhymes, interspersed with her original stories about the small family of geese. While these stories do not group the rhymes thematically, they provide good stopping points and divide the anthology into segments suitable for the attention span of young children at bedtime. For adults who are not familiar with the vast array of lesser known nursery rhymes, this book will be a revelation as well as a trip through childhood memories of Humpty Dumpty, plus the various kings, queens, lambs, and odd characters involved in unusual pursuits. Axel Scheffler's amusing illustrations bring to life the often nonsensical poems, while also conveying the warmth and humor of the goose family. Entertaining from the start, the book also includes a table of contents and an index of first lines to make this thorough treatment of nursery rhymes a handy addition to any collection.
