Sing a Song of Mother Goose

Scholastic Canada has added to its growing list of board books with a re-issue of an old favourite — Sing a Song of Mother Goose illustrated with the vibrant Plasticine art of Barbara Reid. Scholastic didn’t simply re-issue the original 1987 version in board book format, a mistake often made by publishers, but have done a fresh new re-design with a selection of 14 verses and all new illustrations. I was delighted to see Reid’s addition of a pile of soft pillows under the cradle in “Rock-abye Baby.” The result is a perfect first Mother Goose collection for families, daycares and libraries.
