This presentation is so appealing. There is something about the bright white pages with Axel Scheffler’s engaging, curious, almost frozen-bright pictures that captures attention. Thereafter, the rhymes are ideal to share while the actions are absolutely ripe for tapping into.

Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes

A Complete Collection of All Your Favourites

Axel Scheffler

(Pan Macmillan)

Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes offer essential developmental language experience for readers. We know that nursery rhymes are a vital tool in aiding first steps in reading. It seems their rhythm, rhyme and the opportunity to participate offer an essential foundation.
In this edition, acclaimed illustrator Axel Scheffler includes a story that runs through the verses. Thereafter, we enjoy interludes from three goslings who comment, share and act upon these nursery rhymes. It means that we’ve an enjoyable bridge throughout, rather like a Statler and Waldorf!- (Muppet reference)
However, the rhymes are superb. Axel Scheffler includes all our favourites from ‘Ring-a-ring o’ Roses‘ to ‘Two Little Dicky Birds’. There are suggestions for actions alongside the rhymes, also. The pictures are curious, bright and appealing. There is something familiar and nurturing in this interpretation that suggest these nursery rhymes should be shared. Thereafter Bookwagon visualises a knee, a cuddle and lots of reading, sharing, clapping and recalling as young readers enjoy Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes. In addition, Bookwagon recommends this picture book maker’s Farmyard Friends’ series, including Portly Pig and Cuddly Cow. What an opportunity to begin to build a reader!
