“Mary Engelbreit’s Merry Mother Goose” is a sturdy board book composed of six classic Mother Goose nursery rhymes each illustrated in Mary Engelbreit’s classic style.

Cayden:  “Why does she have music wherever she goes?”

Cayden:  “Why does she have bells on her shoes?  Look the horse has bells too!”

Max:  “ Mittens – uh oh!”

Cayden:  “They can’t have pie because they lost their mittens.”

Cayden:  “Sometimes I am bad but I am not ‘horrid’ like she is!”

Cayden:  “My favorite one was the baby in the tree top because she climbed in the tree and into her crib.”

Max:  “Baby climb!”
