Mother Goose: A Scholarly Exploration
Architecture and Patterns: In the Shadow of the Goose
Petra Mathers: Kisses from Rosa
The songs and chants of Mother Goose are familiar symbols of childhood, bringing joy and comfort to generations of young listeners. Here we trace both verbal and visual variants of Mother Goose rhymes over time and across cultures. Read an original fairy tale that tells the story of how the Mother Goose Project was planned and executed. The Mother Goose Shadow side explains both the educational and the technical decisions that governed the creation of the original site. Follow the development of a picture book from its conception through the various revisions of both text and illustration to the published book. Kisses from Rosa by Petra Mathers was lovingly created with many revisions over ten years.
