Due to the file size created by the illustrations we have had to split the original book up into 4 volumes. This is Volume 1 of the series.The beautifully illustrated book of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes on which this Kindle version is based was published in the early 1900’s. The rhymes themselves were taken from older publications and combined with the fantastic color illustrations of Frederick Richardson, a top illustrator of the period, to form this stunning book which is best viewed on color readers.Nursery rhymes are slightly modified over the years as each new generation of story tellers add their flair. While many of the rhymes have remained true to their origin you will notice that some are slightly different. More modern versions of some of these rhymes have been modified to improve the rhyming and others to be more politically correct. This version is interesting in the fact that we can see how children in previous centuries learned them.Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes was originally edited by Eulalie Osgood Grover and the beautiful color illustrations are by the talented Frederick Richardson. There are 27 rhymes in this volume and each has its own accompanying illustration. The illustrations are among the very nicest that you will find in any children’s book ever produced.The Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes form part of each illustration and may be difficult to read on smaller readers so I have repeated the text of the rhyme underneath each illustration in a scalable format to suit all reading devices.Even though these rhymes are hundreds of years old the lessons they teach are timeless and will never be out of date, nor will the delightful pictures. You can now share these nursery rhymes with a new generation and this digital ebook makes sharing very easy. Its designed to be very legible on Kindle for iPhone/iPad/Android/Blackberry or Kindle for PC or other devices where you can view it in color.INDEX TO VOLUME 1Old Mother Goose, when she wanted to wander.Cock-a-doodle doo.Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater.Lady-bird, Lady-bird.One misty, moisty morning.I like little pussy, her coat is so warm.Little Bo-peep has lost her sheep.Little Nanny Etticoat.Jack, be nimble- Jack, be quick.Pretty John Watts.Ill tell you a story.Hush-a-bye, Baby, upon the tree top.Ride away, ride away.Dickery, Dickery, dock.A, B, C, D, E, F, G.The little robin grieves.Little Tommy Tittlemouse.About the bush, Willie, about the bee-hive.Bah, bah, black sheep.Hickety, pickety, my black hen.Willie boy, Willie boy.Three children sliding on the ice.Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town.There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.There was a man and he had naught.There was an old man, and he had a calf.Bow, wow, wow!
