Review:

Some parents and educators object to the old-fashioned and sometimes stereotypical nature of traditional Mother Goose rhymes. Move over, Mother Goose--welcome to the '90s! In this more contemporary collection, Bruce Lansky offers new versions of 41 rhymes, a "kinder, gentler" approach to Mother Goose, with funny twists that will amuse both young listeners and their parents. In this collection, Little Miss Muffet is definitely not afraid of spiders, Old Mother Hubbard's dog calls out for pizza, and the old woman who lived in a shoe retires to a sandal on the beach. Roly-poly contemporary children of all races illustrate these poems in a humorous, good-natured fashion. As a follow-up to traditional Mother Goose poems or on their own, these nursery rhymes for our modern times are a satisfying alternative. (Ages 2 to 5)
