KIRKUS REVIEW

It seems rather odd to have Mother Goose without lots of pictures and quaint figures in gay colors. Apart from that, here are some attractive photographs of children- although a lovely shot of a boy sitting on a roadside fence fishing a still pond does not say ""A dillar, A dollar..."" to the youngest children. Nor does a sad-eyed, pouting child, with interesting shadows, holding a barely discernible fish make the rhyme ""1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 -, Once I caught a fish alive"". Still it is true the pictures have the same appeal of those she did for A Child's Garden of Verses, and the end pages and the cover are especially noteworthy.
