Mother Goose in Prose - L. Frank Baum. Illustrated by MAXFIELD PARRISH. The connection of Mother Goose with the rhymes which bear her name is difficult to determine, and, in fact, three countries claim her for their own: France, England and America. About the year 1650 there appeared in circulation in London a small book, named Rhymes of the Nursery; or Lulla-Byes for Children, which contained many of the identical pieces that have been handed down to us; but the name of Mother Goose was evidently not then known.

Mother Goose in Prose book. Baum takes the lovely Mother Goose rhymes that we all learned and/or taught our children and created full little stories about the various characters. The beginning of each chapter repeats the rhyme and then you hear the story behind the rhyme. Little Boy Blue only fell asleep because he had been loyal to his mom, staying up all ni When we went to the Broadway Buzz, just prior to seeing Wicked again, I read about this book.

I have a Nook, so I had to get a Kindle for PC to be able to read these books... glad I did... I read the first story in this book, about the little boy who lived with his aunt and uncle, and took a sixpense to leave and not return... Sing a Song of Sixpense... I had never heard this version, I think I will love this book!! can't wait to read the rest of the stories!!! :-)

Time is the essence of rhyme:
Prose for those who labors have forsaken.
Little stories to stretch the imagination,
With bookmarks within the pagination!

This is an excellent book with stories to back up the origional nursery rhymes. It is very interesting and fun to read to youngsters.

No pictures in this edition, and about a quarter of the stories are outdated enough that I wouldn't want a kid to read them.

If you remember and loved the nursery rhymes then you will love the stories as much as I do. My favorite is Pussy-cat Mew! I can't wait to visit my grandsons and read these stories to them!

Is it still mother goose? Not to me. Jack is fast and is jumping carefully over the flame but without the rhyme it is not as fun.
Just love Maxfield Parrish!
