These four traditional nursery rhymes have been carefully selected from the bestselling My Very First Mother Goose, the only book published in the last decade to feature in The Bookseller's ten "Picture Books of the Millennium". Presented in sturdy and appealing board books, these best-loved rhymes have been passed on from generation to generation and are here in the ideal format to be encountered at the earliest possible moment and savoured for an entire lifetime. Rosemary Wells' wonderful watercolour pictures create an engaging and exuberant world filled with distinctive characters - rabbits and cats and mice - guaranteed to delight the youngest child.
