Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme Characters
Mother Goose is an imaginary author of a collection of nursery rhymes. There is some disagreement about who the real author is. Some attribute it to John Newbery and others to Thomas Carnan, one of his successors. The collection of nursery rhymes was believed to have been originally published in the 1780s.
For more than seventy-five years THE REAL MOTHER GOOSE has been delighting millions of children, and today the magic is as strong as ever. Heralded as the "standard" Mother Goose by parents, grandparents, teachers, and librarians, this wonderful book with Blanche Fisher Wright's lively, colorful pictures makes an enchanting introduction for the very young. Mother Goose rhymes are a vital part of childhood. And this collection of essential rhymes has been reproduced exactly as they have been repeated from generation to generation.
