"I don't recall that my mother read Mother Goose rhymes to me when I was young. She didn't have to--she knew them all by heart. My Mother Goose carries on a timeless tradition. I say these rhymes to my grandchildren now, and as I do I remember, with great fondness, my mother's sweet voice." -- David McPhail
