Among our all-time favorite illustrators, Arnold Lobel was the creator of Frog and Toad, and he brought that same quirky charm to these images inspired by Mother Goose. First published in 1986, this treasury of 302 timeless rhymes includes both favorite and less familiar verses that are the foundation of any child's language development, among them, "This little pig went to market" and "There was an old woman who lived in a shoe."
"Brimming over with energy…. [This book] distinguished by abundant humor and a rich variety of moods and styles."—School Library Journal (starred review)
