Readerly Mom's Rating

If you're looking for a collection of nursery rhymes, then this is one. And if you're looking for a book full of Mary Engelbreit's recognizable art, then this is that too. I find that I don't enjoy reading this with my kids, mostly because the rhymes themself are kind of quantity, not quality. Let's be honest: a lot of classic Mother Goose nursery rhymes are just weird and don't make sense.
