The traditional Mother Goose rhymes have gone green! My children love for me to read and recite Mother Goose rhymes, and in this book, our favorite characters teach us things we can do to take care of our Earth. For example, Old Mother Hubbard uses cloth shopping bags, Little Jack Horner changes lightbulbs in the corner - to compact fluorescents, and in the green version of "This Little Piggy," the last little piggy squeals, "Re-re-recycle!" all the way home. Reading this book with my 7-year-old son made for great conversations about going green. He was introduced to topics I had never taught him about before, like compost piles and solar panels. We also enjoyed talking about the things we did do that were mentioned in the rhymes, like turning off the tap, and using both sides of the paper. He really got into the Eco-friendly spirit of The Green Mother Goose and learned a lot. Kids and adults will enjoy these fun, read-aloud rhymes as well as the colorful, unique style of artwork found within its recycled paper pages. Carin Berger (illustrator) uses intricate cut paper collages made from scraps and odds and ends that she can find and reuse to illustrate the book. Talk about a truly "green" book -- even the pictures are Eco-friendly! This book is a must-have for parents and schoolteachers who want to encourage their children and students to be green. A perfect read for Earth Day and any day!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
