Book Review: Kate Greenaway’s Mother Goose

Rating: ★★★★☆

Kate Greenaway’s Mother Goose book, originally published in 1881, includes most of the best-loved nursery rhymes illustrated in beautiful watercolor paintings.  Their mood is gently romantic, rather than playful like DePaola’s and Opie’s Mother Goose collections.  For parents who want to introduce a little “real” art to their young children, this could be a very nice fit.  It’s also available in a three-volume board book format.
