Mary Englebreit has outdone herself with her compilation of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes. The vibrant colors of her illustrations along with each nursery rhyme were loved by all in my nursery school class. What is even better is that Mary has coloring pages that go along with her book right on her website. My personal favorite is 'Hey Diddle Diddle'--a masterpiece!

I have given this book many times as a gift and everyone has been delighted! They loved the color pages as they capture and hold your attention. And the classic tales are great for young and old....what memories they hold for me. I would reccommend this for anyone who is looking for that special gift that is different and also for your collection for your children and grandchildren.

This is a fantastic book for children. The illustrations are fantastic. My 3 year old Granddaughter has been able to recite all of the rhymes since she was 2.
