Folklorist Iona Opie has reached into the far realm of Mother Goose to retrieve snatches and snippets of song and rhyme gathered here in Mother Goose's Little Treasures (ages 2-5), illustrated by Rosemary Wells. At once new, but familiar, these singsong rhymes hail from unknown origins. With a light touch the illustrations illuminate the words perfectly. "Long ago laughter of little meaning and echoes of ancient spells," writes Ms. Opie in her introduction which sums up this volume beautifully. ~ Reviewed by Jessica Wood
