Deans Mother Goose Book of Rhymes

 Love this.  Published in 1977.  Found it at a book sale for dirt cheap - one of those ones that makes you think - "why would anyone give this away??"  Illustrations are very important to me in a vintage children's book, and these are amazing and fun.  I also like this book because as a teacher I have noticed that kids these days don't seem to know very many nursery rhymes that well and also have not been exposed to much poetry.  Does anyone else remember this book?             


  1. You LUCKY DUCK! This is illustrated by the Johnstone sisters. I would kill for something by them! Enjoy it!

    1. I actually have 2 of this book! And another Deans/Johnstone book that I will blog about later on! :) All from used book sales.

  2. More great vintage illustrations I love them! Thanks for sharing at The Children's Bookshelf.
