The Lovereading4Kids comment

With beautiful illustrations by the award-winning Axel Scheffler comes this beautiful board book featuring Mother Goose and her three very active little goslings. If they're not splashing in puddles, they're probably chasing each other along the riverbank or having swimming races! So when Mother Goose tells them some of her favourite traditional nursery rhymes, they love to join in with the actions.

This is a glorious book for families to share and sing along with the rhymes. There's even a CD to read along to.


Mother Goose's Action Rhymes by Traditional Rhymes

From I'm a Little Teapot to Row, Row, Row Your Boat, these twelve classic nursery rhymes and traditional action songs are beautifully illustrated by the award-winning Axel Scheffler, illustrator of The Gruffalo.

With a free read-along CD that slots neatly into the cover, Mother Goose's Action Rhymes is a wonderful book for families to share.

A companion title available: Mother Goose's Bedtime Rhymes.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
