Children will love leading their favorite nursery rhyme characters to rewarding goals in these challenging, charmingly illustrated mazes. For this collection, maze master Dave Phillips has created 36 labyrinths whose delightful and perennially popular themes are right out of the pages of Mother Goose.
Children can recite appropriate nursery rhymes as they help young Jack jump over the candlestick; lead old Mother Hubbard and her dog past an empty cupboard to a choice treat for her pet; lend Peter, the Pumpkin Eater, a hand as he tries to get his wife back in the pumpkin shell; assist the fiddlers three as they set out on the trail of Old King Cole; and help other familiar characters.
Additional poems accompanying the mazes include Rock-a-Bye baby; Hickory Dickory Dock; Little Miss Muffet; Baa, Baa, Black Sheep; Ladybird, Ladybird; Little Boy Blue; The Three Little Kittens; Little Bo Peep; Jack and Jill; Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary; There was a Crooked Man; Humpty Dumpty; Jack Sprat; Ding, Dong, Bell and more — all of whose characters can be colored for added fun. Solutions appear at the end.
