This book is a fun and silly collection of Mother Goose stories illustrated in Disney's style and using many of Disney's famous characters. I'm not always in love with Disney work, but, oddly enough, little six-year-old boys are very fond of fun and silly books that they can read by themselves. I do, however, very much like the illustration for Old King Cole.

Do rhymes have any purpose? I get that they're easy for children to memorize, but they don't make sense like short stories do.

The illustrations are cute, and choosing Goofy as Simple Simon was a great move.
I loved my mother reading this to me as a child. Now, I love to read it to my daughter. This is an all time favorite for me!!
This book has robbers stealing tarts.
"Walt Disney's Mother Goose" is a poetry book full of nursery rhymes. Geared toward the nursery age they are loved by children and adults alike.

This "Little Golden Book" version of Mother Goose has some favorites like Jack Sprat and Hey Diddle Diddle and some rare rhymes such as Jumping Joan and Cross Patch as well.

This is a five star winner. Simple rhymes help children learn to read and recognize words. The illustrations add characters from Disney movies such as Dumbo and Mickey Mouse. A real c
A great childhood book.
Such a great addition to one's Little Golden Book and Disney collections!
This is the first Disney digital book that I have read. Different trivia appeared throughout the story and you will find that you are congratulated when you finish. It is a different experience than reading the tales. Both have their place.

This book gets 4 stars purely for nostalgia. I requested this book be read to me so many times as a child that I still cannot hear these nursery rhymes without picturing these illustrations in my mind.

This is one of the books I almost literally wore out as a little girl. It is amazing the thing lasted through my childhood. I loved the Disney characters illustrations with the nursery rhymes.
Jaime Contreras
The Disney touch softens these Mother goose Nursery Rhymes with new blood. This a nicely done and illustrated small book for young children.
Just a Little Golden Book -- and one of the earliest Mother Goose books encountered and therefore I must include it in my Mother Goose favorites.

This was one of my favorite Little Golden Books as a child. Here was where I was first introduced to nursery rhymes.
Kenneth Flores
