Overview

For centuries, nursery rhymes have been children's first experience of literature. They convey the vibrancy of the English language, teach by example the power of words, show how meter and rhythm mingle with sense and amplify meaning, and best of all delight young children with their sheer fun and memorable nonsense. Alan Marks has put together a rich sampling of these classic rhymes—all thoughtfully selected, cleverly grouped, and splendidly illustrated. This handsome volume, with its fresh view of familiar rhymes, attests to the enduring appeal of Mother Goose.
