My Book House - In the Nursery
This book is a reprint of what was once Volume 1 of the My Book House series published in 1937. This wonderful collection of nursery rhymes was gathered from all over the world. More than 350 nursery rhymes and children's poems are featured with colored and/or black and white illustrations that remind me of the old "Dick and Jane" style of pictures. This book an unabridged reprint and includes Japanese lullabies, American Indian songs, Russian rhymes, and Mother Goose stories, from authors such as Robert Louis Stevenson and Christina Rossetti. The table of contents is shown in alphabetical order rather than page order, which makes it a little easier to find specific titles in the book. I remember some of these from my childhood, but there are many I've never read before. Enjoy sharing these with your children! 224 pgs., p/b. ~ Donna
