Notes:Mother Goose rhymes are the nursery rhymes, melodies, prayers, drinking songs and love songs that have enlivened life for all ages. This book gathers more than 1,000 separate rhymes from the earliest surviving publications to the present day. It includes notes that point out the meaning of the rhymes and the many political allusions, jokes, parodies, puzzles and other curiosities. There are many “Mother Goose” books available, but try to find this particular one. The notes make the reading far more interesting.
