Four well-known rhymes are given the spotlight when published as stand-alone titles. Each easy-to-read book includes the traditional Mother Goose verse and simple illustrations featuring folks wearing old-fashioned costumes complete with bonnets and pinafores. The characters, whether animal or human, are expressive and full of personality. Plenty of white space is left on each page for the large-sized text. The result is a series of books with plenty of child appeal, perfect for reading with a group or sharing one-on-one.
