9781589805576: Mother Goose of Yesteryear

The now-classic Mother Goose first began appearing in postcards, newspapers, and magazines in the late 19th century. Although the rhymes have changed over the years as one generation orally passes them on to the next, here is a collection of not only antique illustrations by various artists but also traditional nursery rhymes that bring back childhood memories. With drawings from famous turn-of-the-century artists like Kate Greenaway, Walter Crane, and Thomas Nast, this book is a perfect addition to any household where the spirit of Mother Goose lives on.

From the Inside Flap:

Every child remembers the classic nursery rhymes about the old lady who lived in a shoe and Jack and Jill and their pail of water. However, time and retelling have distorted these rhymes. Here, accompanied by beautiful illustrations from several different artists, are traditional versions of the poems.

Featured illustrators include Kate Greenaway, a children's book author and illustrator during the late 1800s, and Thomas Nast, the political cartoonist of Harper's Weekly who first attributed the Democratic Party with a donkey and the Republicans with an elephant. All of these illustrations bring back the spirit of Mother Goose and show her development and history over the decades.

From timeless classics like "Hickory Dickory Dock" to lesser-known rhymes like "Handy Spandy" and "There Was a Little Girl," this priceless collection will win the hearts of children of all ages.
