From the vast and colorful imagination of Mary Engelbreit springs a Mother Goose world bursting with warmth and humor.

As complete as can be with one hundred rhymes in all, this is truly a book to treasure. It's a masterful collection of the adorable, the zany, and the beautiful that will be cherished for generations.

Mary Engelbreit grew up studying the illustrations in the vintage storybooks of her mother’s own childhood, and she developed a unique style that harkens back to those simpler times. Mary’s distinctive images have made her a celebrity to millions, who eagerly snap up gift items, calendars, books, fabrics, and more.
Mary’s dearest wish has always been to illustrate for children. Her New York Times bestselling the night before christmas is already part of the holiday tradition for families across the country. Other treasured additions to a child’s first bookshelf are her New York Times bestselling Mary Engelbreit’s Mother Goose, Mary Engelbreit’s Nursery Tales, and Mary Engelbreit’s Fairy Tales.From AudioFile:
Lynn Redgrave is an inspired choice as narrator of this expansive collection of 100 Mother Goose rhymes. Her expressive voice brings to life all the well-known characters (Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Little Bo-Peep) while introducing you to a few you may not have met (like Little Poll Parrot and Terrence McDiddler). She brings drama and dignity even to the shortest and silliest verses, which are interspersed with occasional gentle guitar music. If you are listening with little children, you'll want to skip the academic introduction read by Leonard S. Marcus (critic of children's literature). It stands in humorous contrast to the short and snappy rhymes themselves (averaging 10-15 seconds) that follow. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
