Mother Goose is best remembered for her Nursery Rhymes. They have entertained children for generations. What she is less well known for, but has also gifted generations of children with, is a large number of tongue twisters. She did these things to help children develop their linguistic skills in a fun way. Many of these classics have been collected here and are offered up in one place for future generations of children to entertain each other with. Also included is a small collection of her famous (and some less well known) nursery rhymes.
This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic, timeless works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
