Book Review #1228
Tomie dePaola's Mother Goose by Tomie dePaola
Rating: three stars (out of four)
I loved the illustrations throughout this book. Tomie dePaola has such a way of illustrating characters which exude sweetness. His pictures have a softness about them that I love. I also like how he can portray humor on any face. It was nice to see his drawings paired with nursery rhymes. Some of the rhymes were different than what I grew up with, but it was just a slightly different translation or wording. I enjoyed looking through this book and I would recommend it.
