May 1st is Mother Goose Day! The holiday was first celebrated in 1987, and aims to remind us of the nursery rhymes that we heard during childhood.
Mother Goose is the imaginary author of fairy tales and nursery rhymes. The stories that are associated with her promote pre-school reading because young children respond well to music and rhyme. To celebrate, make a list of your favorite rhymes, cook up some curds and whey or “pease porridge” (which is a thick pea soup), and check out one of the many editions of Mother Goose to see beautiful illustrations of the rhymes!
