Format: Hardcover
If you're reading this on Amazon, you probably want to know how this book compares with other large-format Mother Goose nursery rhyme books. Here's my comparison of this book with four others.

This book (Favorite Nursery Rhymes from Mother Goose by Scott Gustafson, ISBN 978-0867130973) -- 45 rhymes. Published 2007. PLUSES: Illustrations (oil paintings) are large, detailed, varied, and fanciful; think a combination of Norman Rockwell, Walt Disney, and Salvador Dali. My favorites include "Jack Be Nimble" with Jack as a grasshopper, and "Simple Simon" as a monkey and the pieman as a gorilla. Several illustrations offset the "politically incorrect" aspects of the corresponding rhymes (e.g., for "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin-Eater" a squirrel couple serves pie to a boy in front of their pumpkin house). Some illustrations depict black and Asian children. MINUSES: Because only the first 1-4 verses from each rhyme is given, "Old Mother Hubbard" is missing a lot of verses. With the smallest selection of rhymes of the books reviewed here, it may not have some that your child may like (e.g., "Three Little Kittens"). SUMMARY: 5 stars.

Mary Engelbreit's Mother Goose: One Hundred Best-Loved Verses, ISBN 0060081716 -- Published 2005. PLUSES: If you like Engelbreit's artistic style, this book is for you. A number of illustrations depict black and Asian children. Has some uncommon rhymes (e.g., "Three Little Ghostesses" and "Terrence McDiddler"). I found no violent rhymes. MINUSES: Some illustrations do not fit the rhymes well.

Format: Hardcover
Graced with museum quality artwork by Scott Gustafson, the Greenwich Workshop edition of "Favorite Nursery Rhymes From Mother Goose" is one of those rare books that will please and enchant readers of all ages from preschoolers to grandparents. This coffee table sized volume is a compilation of opening lines from an impressive and extensive series of classic children's rhymes ranging from Jack and Jill; Humpty Dumpty; Three Blind Mice; and Wee Willy Winkie; to Little Jack Horner, Peter Piper; Old King Cole; and Little Boy Blue. While "Favorite Nursery Rhymes From Mother Goose" is enthusiastically and unreservedly recommended for family book shelves, it would also make a wonderfully appropriate choice for community library Memorial Fund collections and would grace the personal collection of anyone appreciative of fine art.

Can you remember those books you read as a child, that you would just grab again and again or kept taking home from the library? Those big books filled with the most colourful paintings of lively characters and engaging worlds you would just keep gazing at? Well, once again, master illustrator/painter/storyteller Scott Gustafson has created precisely such a book. Gustafson's narrative talent, wonderful sense of colour, layout, characters and uncanny grasp on the craft of oil painting make for a book that you and your child will treasure well beyond childhood.
A masterpiece that comes at this price should have you adding it to your shopping card without any more thinking, I can not recommend it highly enough.

Format: Hardcover
This collection stands out in both the quality of production of the book and content. The pages are sturdy, the colors vibrant and the layout accessible. Only one Mother Goose rhyme is depicted for each double-page spread. Many other collections have several rhymes on one page, making a cluttered feeling and undeveloped illustrations. Gustafson's paintings are whimsical and not at all frightening, even when the rhyme may be (think Jack and Jill, and Three Blind Mice).

Format: Hardcover
Nursery ryhmes are so important to learn as a child. As an adult, I know most of them and wanted to teach them to my children. I researched the perfect book that included all the rhymes I remembered. This book was it!! It had all the classic nursery ryhmes I remembered and more! And you will love the illustrations...beautiful! My son (age 4) remembers each picture and will talk about it. You will find so much detail in each illustration that will add to the nursery ryhme even more. I highly recommend this book!

Scott Gustafson's illustrations absolutely MAKE this book. I collect children's books and own many editions and variations of Mother Goose but the illustrations in this one make it the premier copy to own or give as a gift. No child or library should be without one.

I bought this book for my 22 month-old, and she loves it even more than I expected her to. I did not realize when I ordered it that the book is actually pretty large, but she carries it around everywhere with her. It is really adorable to see her padding toward me on her tiny feet with a book that's at least 1/2 her size saying, "Read this to me." The illustrations are precious. She enjoys exploring the pictures as much as listening to the verses. If it were up to her we would sit and read this together all day.

Very beautiful book. I just wish the book included more complete rhymes. Some appeared to be abbreviated a bit. it is still good though.
