Overview

Knopf is proud to reissue the complete and unabridged Arnold Lobel-illustrated treasury of Mother Goose rhymes, originally published in 1986 as The Random House Book of Mother Goose and unavailable for several years. Reviewers were unanimous in their acclaim of a collection "brimming over with energy...distinguished by abundant humor and a rich variety of moods and styles" (School Library Journal, starred review). The beloved creator of the Frog and Toad books included 306 nursery rhymes--several hundred more than any other quality edition of Mother Goose--and "all are illustrated in a cornucopia of drawings which demonstrates the range of [his] technique and imagination" (Kirkus Reviews). The New York Times Book Review called it "brilliant," while The Washington Post Book World praised it as "surely one of the most satisfying nursery-rhyme books ever made."

An illustrated collection of Mother Goose nursery rhymes, including well-known ones such as "Bah, Bah, Black Sheep" and "Little Boy Blue" and less familiar ones such as "Doctor Foster went to Gloucester" and "When clouds appear like rocks and towers."

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Caldecott Medal winner Arnold Lobel takes center stage with his lavishly illustrated book of Mother Goose nursery rhymes. Originally published as The Random House Book of Mother Goose, this edition comes unabridged and contains more than 300 rhymes, from "Humpty Dumpty" to "Wee Willie Winkie" to "Old Mother Hubbard." Each page comes with Lobel's fanciful, loosely drawn artwork, combined with an eye-catching design that gives these legendary rhymes the whimsy and playfulness they deserve. A marvelous collection brought to life by a renowned artist, this keepsake will have Mother Goose finding her way into the hearts of young readers while reminding fans of her timeless and endearing words.
From the Publisher
“Mother Goose glows with renewed youth, thanks to the genius of Arnold Lobel. His illustrations are so abundant, and so full of color, fun, and imagination, that the book is not to be missed.”–The New Yorker
Publishers Weekly
The Arnold Lobel Book of Mother Goose (1986), originally published as The Random House Book of Mother Goose, appears here in a complete and unabridged edition with more than 300 nursery rhymes, all illustrated in Lobel's distinctive style, whether he is winking at the audience (as in "Three blind mice," when he reveals that the trio can see) or acknowledging the sky's starry splendor in "Hey diddle, diddle."
Children's Literature
Lobel's charming illustrations are sure to bring smiles to young and old alike in this reissue of his classic collection of nursery rhymes. Each of the 306 entries is imaginatively illustrated in zestful color, some filling full pages with exuberant joy and others offering tiny vignettes of humor. Tongue twisters, limericks, wise sayings, songs, and cumulative tales are interspersed among the many well-known rhymes. Related pieces are grouped together. All of the pigs pictured on a two-page spread are truly preposterous, for example. Whether read straight though or opened randomly on any page, this book is a delight. An index of first lines aids in finding specific pieces. Previously published as the Random House Book of Mother Goose. 2003 (orig. 1986), Knopf,

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Mother Goose rhymes have stood the test of time. So too has this collection by Caldecott Medal winner Arnold Lobel. The amusing pencil and watercolor illustrations are arranged to complement all of the verses. Many occupy a spread while half a dozen little verses and limericks with illustrations occupy other spreads. The pictures are filled with humor and even if kids can't read, they will love looking at the pictures. It's a treasury for every child and a wonderful choice for new parents. 1997 (orig.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
The "First Mother" of reading is Mother Goose. One of the most important books in a baby's collection is a volume of Mother Goose. I've heard that many of the rhythms and rhymes echo a mother's heartbeat. That would explain why these verses can soothe a seemingly inconsolable infant into sleep, or bring smiles and giggles to a bored baby. What's more, they have endured for centuries. Choosing a particular volume depends on personal taste. This one is filled with three hundred classic nursery rhymes and lovely illustrations. 1997 (orig.
