PreS-K—This is a clever picture book filled with fun references to traditional nursery rhymes. Mother Goose, master storyteller, is the hostess of this party. "They gathered in the reading nook/with Mother Goose's famous book./She read of those who sat beside her,/Dish and Spoon and Muffet's spider./She read of those who were not there,/like Simple Simon at the fair./She read of ships and seas they roam./She read until Peep's sheep came home." A big plus is the inclusion of the traditional characters' rhymes at the back of the book. The multicultural coed cast created with digital artwork gives the figures a modern look and feel. The bright, realistic, and colorful illustrations, which frequently span across a spread, capture the business and grandeur of the party itself. Children will be eager to attend this magical slumber party. VERDICT Nursery rhymes lovers will enjoy this witty adaptation.—Gwen Collier, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY
"Children will be eager to attend this magical slumber party."—School Library Journal
"Allyn’s digitally created illustrations have the warmth of acrylic paintings, and she gives her ethnically diverse young cast round faces, gleaming eyes, and fuzzy heads of hair. The atmosphere is definitely slumber party cozy, especially after the children settle down to hear Mother Goose read stories from her 'famous book.'"—Publishers Weekly

Mother Goose has called all of her favorite characters to her house for story time, and we get to follow the cow, dish and the spoon, along with Jack be Nimble and Jack-a-Dandy as they gather together their things to head to her house. Wee Willie Winkie is coming, along with Bo Peep, and that Contrary Mary, Miss Muffet's spider is also there, and they all get to listen to MG's tales of faraway lands. When it's time to say goodnight, Mother Goose puts them all to bed as the stars spell out Good Night. The text is clever and the rhyming is perfect as befits a Mother Goose story.
But Wait! This book isn't done yet! After the story is done, you get a full text of each of the fifteen rhymes featured in the story. The illustrations have a classic, timeless feel and with the addition of the original rhymes, this turns this book into the complete package. I love everything about this one, and if you are looking for one toddler book to give this Christmas, you can't go wrong with Mother Goose's Pajama Party. This is a whimsical treat that will keep on giving and is an enthusiastic recommend.
