McPhail My Mother GooseThe book starts with an introduction from the illustrator about why he enjoys Mother Goose rhymes. The style of illustrations is very familiar as David McPhail has published such books as The Bear’s Toothache and many others. The back of the book has an index that lists the first lines of each rhyme. There are over sixty rhymes in this great collection. The book also includes concepts such as action words, colors, getting dressed, going places, my 123’s, My ABC’s and Shapes. This is a great way to teach and entertain children.
