Reviews - What do customers think about The Real Mother Goose?
. May 11, 2008
This book is an absolute necessity for anyone who is around children or, even moreso, a child at heart. The nursery rhymes of Mother Goose are classic and enduring, and this collection, with its vivid illustrations, bring to life so many familiar and wonderfully non-familiar poems.
child pleaser Feb 29, 2008
What is to say about a classic? We have the origional I bought when my son was born 40 years ago this is for my newest grandson short, sweet readable stuff to make a baby giggle
The Real Mother Goose Feb 23, 2008
This is the same edition my kids grew up with (real old fashioned, vivid color pictures), and we love it. I like to give it as a gift for baby showers to encourage young parents to making reading (and especially classics like this one)a priority in raising their little ones.

I couldn't find one around here but was very pleased to get a copy through your web site. It came in a timely manner also. Thank you, my grandson is studying the poems in school and will be very pleased to receive this for his birthday in April.
Excellent book for reading aloud Dec 15, 2007
Reading aloud to children is important for language development and for adult-child interaction. This book is a excellent in that it is interesting to children, non-boring for adults, and can be used for a short or long read. This was a favorite of our now grown children and I was thrilled to be able to find the same edition to buy for their children. There are only a few rhymes on each page, and the colored illustrations are eye-catching and pleasing. I highly recommend this book!!
