Mother Goose reading her beloved nursery rhymes, white goose wearing a green bonnet with a bow standing beside her.
In mid 17th century France, a mythical Mother Goose was widely acknowledged by peasants and nobility alike as a "fairy birdmother" who told charming tales to children. First published in American in 1787, Mother Goose nursery rhymes and tales are a very real part of our literary tradition.
