We started off the month with National Mother Goose Day on May 1. Mother Goose Day was founded by Gloria T. Delamar, author of the book Mother Goose: From Nursery to Literature. The day is now celebrated throughout the United States. The Library features nursery rhymes and Mother Goose in our storytime programs. Other ways to celebrate Mother Goose is to act out some of the rhymes or even bake something from a rhyme. If you would like to read some Mother Goose books, or compare rhymes in various books, you may be interested in Mother Goose: A Collection of Classic Nursery Rhymes selected and illustrated by Michael Hague, Tomie de Paola’s Mother Goose, and Black Mother Goose Book arranged by Elizabeth Murphy Oliver. Stop by your local library and introduce yourself to Mother Goose.
