It’s National Mother Goose Day! Who remembers growing up with these old nursery rhymes? who also feels like they are slowly slipping out of modern childhood? I’ve Rounded up my favorite mother goose books, and let’s be honest, favoritism is largely based on the illustrations accompanying them. Amazon affiliate links follow photographs.
Illustrations by William Wallace Denslow- An editorial cartoonist best known for his original Wizard of Oz illustrations, but also had many political inspired illustrations.
The classic illustrations of Jessie Wilcox Smith
This one is book shelf display worthy with a beautiful cover and illustrations through out.
This one is perfect for the littlest of littles.
This one may be more for you than your child, but the illustrations are glorious and a bit haunting.
okay, this one may not be entirely Mother Goose, but can you name a classic nursery rhyme that isn’t? That’s what I thought.
My Son is a big Richard Scarry fan, (cars and trucks and things that go anyone?) so I was stoked to find he did a mother goose book as well!!
