Together we'll do it-
We'll help save the earth…
Come now, rhyme with me,
Let's turn our hearts loose,
And fly 'round the world
With Green Mother Goose.
Mother Goose has gone green-and this playful picture book invites kids to join the fun. In these delightful “recycled” rhymes, Old Mother Hubbard shops with cloth grocery bags; Old King Coal is a better old soul, working to keep our skies smoke-free; and Hickety, Pickety is now a cage-free hen!
Carin Berger's stunning and whimsical eco-friendly collages are created from ticket stubs, newspapers, and other reused items.
