Pleasantly surprised! Sep 20, 2007
My 3 yr old daughter keeps reaching for this book. The photographs paired with simple Mother Goose Rhymes make for a very entertaining read. This book also has a bit of charm to it, with it's interesting use of fonts and word placement and the country stylized hard cover. This book will definately entertain those who love animals. Kids will enjoy seeing the dogs dressed up as different characters. A very fun book and very well done.
Wegman's Mother Goose Jul 12, 2007
I love the Wegman dogs (whoops, I don't know if they know they are dogs) and the whimsy of the Wegman books & videos. They are fun while giving a new twist to learning or to an old story. The weimaraner's take to being made almost human and the immagination of Wegman makes you laugh. My favorite video is ABC Soup. It is a must for your child or grandchild. Mine loved it.
Age group should read "4 to 100!" Sep 25, 2000
I got this book for MYSELF about 2 years ago - at the age of 36. It put me, as do all Wegman books, in bouts of laughter from his ever-so-creative Weimraner photos.
