“Mary Engelbreit’s Funny Mother Goose” is composed of six classic Mother Goose nursery rhymes each illustrated in Mary Engelbreit’s classic style.

Cayden:  “I know ‘Jack and Jill’- they went up a hill!  That is Jill and that one is Jack and there is the bucket for water.”

Cayden:  “Max, you know ‘Pat-a-cake’ don’t you?”

Cayden:  “Look, there is a ‘B’ on that cake and it is chocolate!”

Max:  “Cake!”

Cayden:  “It looks yummy!”

Max:  “Yum!  Eat!”

Cayden:  “’Ring around the rosebushes?’  That isn’t how it goes!”

Cayden:  “Why is that boy wearing shoes in bed?  You aren’t supposed to do that! You are supposed to wear jammies!”

Parent’s comments:
“Mary Engelbreit’s Funny Mother Goose” is a great little board book that contains some nursery rhymes that my children were already familiar with and also some that were new to them.  The illustrations are wonderfully captivating and anyone who loves the artwork of Mary Engelbreit will definitely enjoy reading this book to the young person in their life.
