This is one of the most comprehensive Mother Goose collections I've seen, besides being so winsomely illustrated. My one-year-old loves it. Recommended for all homes! ( )

This gigantic book (92 pages!) has almost every Mother Goose rhyme you could ask for! Each nursery tale includes a full spread illustration, with Scarry's classic animal illustrations. Kids will have fun reading their favorite rhymes over and over again, and parents and teachers will rediscover what they loved about Mother Goose. A fun activity would be acting out rhymes. For ages 4-7.

Scarry, R., (1970). Richard scarry's best Mother goose ever. New York: Golden Press.
This book contains fifty rhymes with very large illustrations for each rhyme making it a good book for a story hour. The text is somewhat smaller than that of "My Very First Mother Goose," due to the fact that it contains larger illustrations.
  edtech5 | Jul 2, 2010 |

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0307155781, Hardcover)

Richard Scarry's bright and humorous animal characters have been charming children for decades. Always inventive in the world of animal fashion, Scarry shows the cow jumping over the moon in pearls and a pink dress, and the little dog who "laughed to see such sport" sports a sailor suit. You won't hear "I can't see the pictures!" with this book; its large size makes it a good choice for group story hour. This collection of 50 Mother Goose rhymes is especially appropriate for toddlers; most of the two-page spreads contain only one illustrated rhyme. (Many children younger than three can focus better on one simple verse than on many rhymes on each page.) Richard Scarry's Best Mother Goose Ever has stood the test of time for more than 25 years and is still a hit with young readers. (Ages 1 to 4)
