    Beautiful full page colors illustrations makes this a picture book as well as a collection of Mother Goose Rhymes. I love that some of the illustrations present a gentler interpretation of the rhyme.

    Wow this was a wonderful collection of Mother Goose rhymes! I loved reading all of the nursery rhymes both familiar and not. There is an index in the back of all the rhymes which is helpful when you have a child who wants to hear a specific one. The book is beautifully illustrated and makes the rhymes come to life with the detail and colorful story they tell. Nursery rhymes are a wonderful way to get children interested in reading. The short, simple, silly rhymes are easy to memorize and incorporate into your day. Nursery rhymes foster a love of the written word and early literacy skills.

    This was a recently discovered gem in our family library. My son loves to have nursery rhymes read to him at night and this book fits the bill in spades. He likes the rhymes, I like the pictures. The art is effective and simple all at the same time. The rhymes covered run the full gamut, from traditional (Little Ms. Muffet) to more modern (This is the Way to School).My only real complaint about the book is its size; its HUGE. Makes it hard to read with one hand in those late evening hours.The big idea of each vignette is a moral, with some being more clear than others (still have no idea what Humpty Dumpty signifies).

    This is a beautifully illustrated book of nursery rhymes. It includes all of the classics as well as some not so popular ones. One thing I noticed that was interesting was that she changed the end of the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe to “she gave them some broth with plenty of bread. She kissed them all sweetly and put them to bed.”After noticing the change, I looked at the author/illustrator’s forward and read that she softened the images so as not to scare children with the original words. The only one she changed the words of was the Old Woman Who Lived in the Shoe. One way of softening the image for example was when Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall, it was a little duckling that was hatched out of him. This made the fact that Humpty Dumpty couldn’t be put back together not so traumatizing.

    Long, S. (1999). Sylvia Long's Mother Goose. San Francisco: Chronicle Books.Age: 2 to 4 years oldArtist Sylvia Long combines well-known rhymes with familiar ones to create this beautifully illustrated Mother Goose collection. With more than 80 rhymes, Long fills her pages with insect and animal characters instead of people, bringing rhymes together with the help of the illustrations. Whenever possible, she adds “a gentleness to the pictures” to soothe the more shocking references. In one instance, she admits changing the words (“There was a woman who lived in a shoe”) where the image of violence in the line “Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed” has been replaced with “She kissed then all sweetly / And put them to bed” (p. 70). Children will enjoy the pen-and-watercolor images of animals dressed in fancy clothes—a fly in a wedding dress, a frog in suit and tie, a parrot wearing a vest—as they perform everyday human activities. This is a whimsical take on the Mother Goose rhymes that will delight children and adults alike.

    Long has gathered more than seventy-five Mother Goose rhymes, familiar and uncommon, ranging from silly to morals. The pages are filled with full bold illustrations, yet the details within the pictures could be distracting to young listeners. The author's attempt to soften "the more frightening images" of the traditional rhymes was done by adding "a gentleness" to the pictures (i.e., a fallen Humpty Dumpty is represented by a hatching chick). Overall, the page layout is cohesive (animals) and linked visually (elements of illustration are reoccurring), which adds to the playfulness and fun of learning nursery rhymes. If a reader is looking for a comprehensive volume, unusual nursery rhymes or new spins on the visuals for Mother Goose rhymes, then this book is worth the read. Age Appropriate: 3-5 years old. Long, S. (1999). Sylvia Long's Mother Goose. San Francisco: Chronicle Books.Long's Mother Goose is vastly different in format than Opie's and Wells's, Here Comes Mother Goose. Long's beautiful intricate illustrations look busy in comparison to Opie's and Wells's bold cartoon-like images. Also, the pictures from Here Comes Mother Goose are a more literal representation of the nursery rhyme, whereas Long's visual interperation of the rhymes are more unique and reflect her personal experiences. The readability of text is easier with Her Comes Mother Goose because the font is large. Each of these books are well constructed for its intended audience.

    Summary: Some more fun nursery rhymes. Response: I always enjoy nursery rhymes and it reminds me of my childhood. Fun illustrations in this book as well. Connection: There is always a place for nursery rhymes either at home or in the car or at school.

    Sylvia Long’s Mother Goose is inhabited with watercolor and ink illustrations of gentle animals acting out nursery rhymes, both well-known and obscure, that are true to the originals. The colorful full page images engross the reader in the escapades of the alter egos of Mother Hubbard and her compatriots. Well suited for reading aloud to groups, solo perusal, and bed time reading.

    This book is absolutely fabulous. I wasn't sure if we would get into "Mother Goose". The language seemed dated and some of the the themes are inappropriate. But Sylvia Long has really pulled it off in this master piece. The majority of the poems chosen are timeless. They are arranged and grouped well according to themes, adn the illustrations provide interesting "interpretations" of the poems. My two year old daughter LOVES this book and asks for it again and again.
