The Real Mother Goose Book Review

This is one of my all-time favorite children's books. I remember having the soft cover edition. The book was a staple of my childhood. My mom would always read the stories to me and I loved looking at the beautiful pictures.

The great thing about this book is that it stands the test of time. All of the stories are timeless and will be remembered for generations to come.
