The illustrations are beautiful.

If yours are the same you might not like this book, as only every other double page is colored.

My mother ordered this book for my sister's baby because she wanted a good source of Mother Goose Rhymes (every child should know them!). Unfortunately, this book does not fit the bill. The rhymes are all there, but the illustrations are definitely lacking. Some are not even colored and are too small to see. My mother was profoundly disappointed, and I was too when we saw the book. I know there's a good Mother Goose book out there. This one is not it.

My three-year-old daughter loves this book! She loves the illustrations. One problem - she doesn't know what a lot of them mean, and truthfully, sometimes neither do I. While some of the characters are mainstays of our culture, like Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater and Jack Sprat, others could be very easily forgotten.

I was disappointed that most of the pictures were in black and white. Children love colored pictures as well as a good story!

My memories of Mother Goose Rhymes are colorful. If yours are the same you might not like this book, as only every other double page is colored. The pages that are colored are beautiful. Perhaps you would enjoy coloring it yourself, as I have considered. If you have a child or grandchild who would like to share time with you coloring the pages as you read/discuss the rhymes, this is the book for you, otherwise there are many colorful alternatives available. Wish I had heeded the reviews.ccccccccc

I read this to my daughters 30 years ago and I loved the rhymes so much I can still recite them. Just ordered 2 books for my daughters (one who is expecting her first in January). Don't remember so many black and white illustrations but the poems are still classic and sound so wonderful in a sing song voice. BTW, had to order multiple copies when they were young because they took such a beating.

I had this book when I was a kid and spent some time trying to find it for my own son and future children. It has tons of nursery rhymes and fantastic illustrations. The hardcover and thicker pages are great when little hands get a hold of it. I was very pleased to find this book and even more happy that I found the book that 20 years ago kept me entertained and taught me how to read.

Best Treasury of Mother Goose I have seen so far. I have several collections, but for some reason my kids will sit still and listen to this one the longest. (I have a 1, 3, and 4 year old). The illustrations go back and forth between black and white and color. My kids don't care for the black and white pages as much as the color pages, but it is good practice for reading chapter books later!
