The only problem with this book is that they have a poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow as a Mother Goose Rhyme. That really bothers me. "There was a little girl . . ." ( )

A collection of Mother Goose rhymes illustrated with color photographs of primarily African-American children depicting the characters of the rhymes. Spirited and fun presentation.

This book is great for teaching rhymes.

48 months - There are so many amazingly illustrated Mother Goose versions out there I don't think this one was particularly special in any way. ( )

This book is fantastic because the photos are so culturally and racially diverse. There is every kind of child you can imagine pictured on these pages. I would definitely use this as a parent because it would help my child get used to a more diverse collection of people. And of course the rhymes are classic!
