Reviews - What do customers think about My First Real Mother Goose?

odd mix of favorites and obscure ones  Feb 13, 2008
I have a few quibbles about this book. First, like the other 2 star reviewer said, there are some poems which I had never heard of before and which don't really rhyme well. Second, many poems only have the first verse or so. For example, "one, two, buckle my shoe" ends at ten. Third, "ring around the rosy" is right in the middle of the book. No matter how tired my daughter is, she's always up for another round of "ring around the rosy" - making this a tough book to use at bedtime. Finally, I thought the illustrations were rather odd - depicting a racially integrated Victorian England...?! Nice sentiment, but rather revisionist.
Great Book  Mar 10, 2007
My son has loved this book from day one. He is almost 2 1/2, and we are on our 2nd copy. He calls it baa baa. He asks to have it read over and over again. I never heard of many of the nursery rhymes, but who cares. He loves it, and that is what matters.
Love this book!  Jan 11, 2007
All three of my kids have loved this book, starting from about 14 months. My four year old twins still stop and listen when I read it to their little brother. These classic and timeless rhymes are also fun for me to read aloud! A must for every toddler's library!
Not what I expected  Nov 6, 2006
I was very disappointed when I received this book. It had gotten such great reviews on this site that I was sure it would be a perfect gift for my toddler nephews. However, I haven't even heard of many of the rhymes in it! Of the 15 nursery rhymes in the book, I only recognized 7 of them (and I consider myself a pretty well-read person). I wouldn't have minded the inclusion of rhymes that are new to me, except that I'm not sure how to read them so that they sound like they, well...rhyme. For example "goosey, goosey, gander, where dost thou wander? Upstairs and downstairs and in my lady's chamber." Ok, maybe I can make that work with a little tinkering, but what about "Hush-a-bye, baby, lie still with daddy. Mommy has gone to the mill, to get some meal to bake a cake. So please, my dear baby, lie still?" If I can't get the rhymes to sound proper, I'm not sure how I'm supposed to read them to my nephews or my son.

The book DOES NOT include many common nursery rhymes, such as "Mary had a little lamb", "The old woman who lived in a shoe", "Little Bo Peep", "Little Boy Blue", "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star", or "Hey Diddle Diddle."

Here is a listing of the rhymes that ARE included so you can decide for yourself if it has what you're looking for.
Baa, Baa, Black Sheep
Hush-a-bye (I know this as "rock-a-bye baby")
Jack (jack be nimble...)
Goosey, Goosey, Gander
Jack and Jill
To Market
Hush-a-bye (this is the one that I typed above)
Ring around the rosies
A Star (no, this is not twinkle, twinkle)
Five Toes (this little piggy went to the market...)
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe
For Baby
I See the Moon
Sleep, Baby, Sleep

Also, the illustrations aren't very interesting.
Great First Addition to Mother Goose  Mar 20, 2005
My son received this book on his first birthday and has enjoyed it so much! His favorite is "Jack be Nimble, Jack be Quick." He enjoys looking at the pictures by himself and I don't have to worry about him ripping the pages! The illustrations are adorable and they have a vintage quality to them. It is nice that other skin colors are represented as well. I'd highly recommend this version of some Mother Goose.
