Mother Goose books come and go, but the ones the children like best are the big flat books, with full pages in color and spot drawings on the text pages, so that every rhyme has at least one picture of its own. This Margaret Tarrant book classifies on those counts. To be sure there are only about twenty rhymes- but they are good beginning ones, and lead on to other nursery rhyme books. The quality of the illustrations in traditional perhaps --soft pastel tones and pencil black and whites, but there's lots of action, enough humor, and close tie-up with text. Lots for the money.
