Reviews

A lovely 20th-anniversary edition of the acclaimed 1996 collaboration between illustrator Rosemary Wells and editor Iona Opie. Here some 60 classic nursery rhymes are set amid ink-and-watercolor pictures as quirky as they are cozy.
--The Wall Street Journal

It's been 20 years since world-renowned folklorist Iona Opie and beloved illustrator Rosemary Wells (who Opie firmly believes is Mother Goose's second cousin) published the ultimate--and award-winning--nursery rhyme collection My Very First Mother Goose. With this anniversary edition (sporting a fetching new pale-yellow cover), another generation of young children will clap their hands, wiggle their toes and sing-song along to 60 "eccentric, funny, goluptious, haphazard" rhymes...Every household needs this book.
