We have a few Mother Goose books at our house, and one of my favorites is this version by Gyo Fujikawa. This is an older volume that’s been reissued. The illustrations are familiar feeling and comforting (and totally old school cool), and I swear, it has twice as many poems as any other Mother Goose I’ve come across.

I love reading Mother Goose poems aloud. I like to think of all those mothers and fathers who have read or recited the familiar words to their own little ones — for decades and decades (even centuries?). Do your kids like Mother Goose poems?

Last time I posted about Gyo Fujikawa, there was some confusion about whether this famous illustrator was a man or a woman. Does anyone know for sure?
