These nursery rhymes programs put a new spin on the classics to make favorite rhymes come alive. Brother and Sister Goose join Mother Goose to present 43 rhymes using upbeat, pop-style music sung to traditional and new melodies. The playful geese lead kids through each rhyme, teaching them about being safe, using manners, and accepting responsibility.
On Nursery Rhymes Audio CD, an easy-to-follow booklet with picture page markers lets children use this program independently. Lively songs and colorful illustrations give preschoolers an early experience with books that involves them as they turn the pages to follow along.

2. "Mother, Sister, and Brother Goose host this recording which includes 41 traditional nursery rhymes put to music and two original songs, one about safety and the other about manners. The musical style is primarily pop, with 'There Was an Old Woman' in rap and 'Rub-a-Dub-Dub' in vaguely calypso or reggae. All songs are sung by an adult and children’s chorus and accompanied by professional musicians. The booklet contains all the lyrics and colorful illustrations. Listeners are cued when to turn the pages. Among the traditional rhymes are 'Baa, Baa, Black Sheep,' 'Diddle, Diddle Dumpling,' 'Going to St. Ives,' 'Jack and Jill,' 'Little Bo-Peep,' 'London Bridge,' 'Mary Had a Little Lamb,' (with all the verses), etc. This is an excellent introduction to nursery rhymes for young children."
