Mother Goose: what's it all about, really?

Posted on Thursday, August 30, 2012 by Cupertino_Library

Countless children have grown up singing and chanting Mother Goose rhymes in school, at the library during story-time, and at home. What is the meaning behind some of these rhymes?  For the curious parent, one can read about the story behind the rhyme. See the following Rutgers University link: http://eclipse.rutgers.edu/goose/rhymes. You may never look at Mother Goose the same way again, but the rhymes endure, even if the story behind it is long forgotten.
