Hey diddle diddle... May 1st is Mother Goose Day.
You can view an illustrated 1916 copy  or Mother Gosse in Prose by Frank L Baum (Oz author) on-line. Visit the AFPL catalogue for contemporary verisons like The Top Secret Files of Mother Goose and Jaha and Jamil Went Down the Hill: an African Mother Goose. History buffs might enjoy scholarly research that examines who Mother Goose was, explores the social & political uses of the rhymes and Mother Goose in advertising.
