The Real Mother Goose

From the Series First Avenue Classics ™

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 4
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

The identity of Mother Goose may remain a mystery, but the timeless appeal of the fairy tales and nursery rhymes associated with this cherished imaginary author has lasted for generations of young readers. This collection includes more than three hundred of Mother Goose’s best-known and best-loved nursery rhymes for children. Here, Humpty Dumpty has a great fall, Jack and Jill go up the hill, and the dish runs away with the spoon. Peter Piper picks a peck of pickled peppers, little Miss Muffet sits on a tuffet, and Mother Goose herself rides through the air on a very fine gander. Also included are favorites such as “Three Blind Mice,” “Little Bo-Peep,” “Hot Cross-Buns,” and “Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary.” This collection, taken from the 1916 copyright edition, features charming full-color illustrations by Blanche Fisher Wright.
