Teaching three young goslings how to swim, fly and waddle nicely isn’t easy. Boo, Lucy and small would much rather play games, chase butterflies or splash about in puddles. So in between lessons, Mother Goose starts to tell them rhymes- happy rhymes, sad rhymes and silly rhymes, rhymes for waddling in time, rhymes for flapping their wings and rhymes to lull them asleep. Now all Mother Goose’s rhymes have been gathered together in one beautiful volume for everyone to enjoy. The exquisite illustrations by the brilliant Axel Scheffler make this uniquely fresh and entertaining collection truly a book to treasure. Axel has enjoyed particular success with his collaborations with Julia Donaldson, including the award-winning classic The Gruffalo.
The volume itself is attractively presented, with good quality binding on the hardback edition and well printed colour plates. You certainly will feel that this is a book your child will be able to grow up with and pass on to his or her own offspring as a treasured heirloom insha-Allah. The book has eighty eight rhymes to keep your children quite occupied. My three children all under five love this rhyme book. I would highly recommend this book for your little ones. Enjoy the rhymes!
