School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-As MaryLee Sunseri explains in her informative liner notes, the origin of Mother Goose is a mystery; she is likely "a composite of many women singing for children down through the ages, passing along folk songs and clapping rhymes, generation to generation." Sunseri, an ideal modern ambassador of this tradition, not only sings but also plays guitar, recorders, banjo, and percussion on this album. From familiar favorites like "This Little Pig" and "Humpty Dumpty" to lesser known songs like "The Fox" and "White Coral Bells," Sunseri's clear voice and appropriately medieval-sounding instrumentals breathe new life into classic tunes. Many of the arrangements incorporate more than one Mother Goose rhyme, and most are set to familiar tunes, encouraging family singalongs. The wide variety of tunes will appeal to young and old alike. After listening to "Five Wild Dragons," even seven year old boys will realize that Mother Goose is not only for babies. An ideal introduction to these enduring classics, whether for babies or older children and grownups who never had the pleasure of experiencing them before, and a must-have for every librarian who presents programs for young children.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia (c) Copyright 2010.
