Delightful Catholic Mother Goose Poetry Book! Lighthearted Poems to Inspire Your Children!
Materials: ink, paper
When my children were young I loved to read to them stories, poems and nursery rhymes! They knew those rhymes inside and out and it was such a happy pastime! I did yearn, at times, for little ditties that had more meaning…….So I decided to write a book myself for the generation after me….especially thinking of my grandchildren, but for all Catholic children everywhere!
This is a 140 page fun-packed book full of Catholic poems and pictures!The amazing pencil drawings are by the wonderful artist, Mrs. Becky Melechinsky, along with a few contributions from my daughter, Virginia!
Here is the Foreword of my book:
Who can resist those little ditties, those lovely little sing-song verses called Nursery Rhymes! Songs and rhymes for young children have been passed down from generation to generation. They are fun, children love them, and they provide a warm, nurturing experience for the whole family.
Nursery Rhymes can be very valuable in a child’s reading development. They are short and easy to repeat and they become some of the child’s first sentences. They also help the child practice the rhythm of language….pitch, volume and voice inflection.
Our own children grew up learning and repeating Nursery Rhymes. It was very enjoyable and it was an easy way to teach the children the use of rhythm and rhyme. How much more meaningful those little poems would have been if there had been more depth in the considerations behind each little verse!
That is where this book comes in. It gives us some lovely rhymes that can, and should, be committed to heart by your children. Not only will it provide all the benefits of reading and memorizing, but it will supply some simple reflections that will turn those little minds to what is most important in their life….their Catholic Faith.
Research shows children learn more in their first eight years than they do in the rest of their lives. This is a powerful time to teach them.
Most important, it is a crucial time for us, as those devout Catholic parents of old, to teach our children their Faith as they sit at our feet and learn from us.
So, parents, here is a teaching tool that can help! These are meaningful little rhymes that will provide an enjoyable way to teach your children and will enrich your home with Catholic culture!
Encourage your children to learn the poems in this book. Let them peruse the pages and look at the pictures. You will find that it will be a meaningful experience for all!

Absolutely adorable! I bought it for my God daughter's 3rd birthday, but my 15 year old wanted to memorize nearly every page before we gave it to her, she wished she'd have learned these when she was young, especially the ones with feast days. Thank you for creating something so beautiful!
Love this!! Fun poems, reminisce of the classic Mother Goose poetry but with meaning behind the ditties! A great way to both entertain littles and inspire and educate them in their Catholic faith! My little 14 month old so far enjoys these as far as her little attention span can handle. Only thing I might change would be to add color to the pictures! But the pencil art in there is very good and I know color pictures would have to raise the price! All in all a great purchase, you will be glad you added this book to your collection and your children will be too!
What an incredibly beautiful book! The children have already picked out favorites, and are learning them. Perfect to read before bed and during quiet moments so they have time to ponder. I couldn't be more thrilled with my purchase! Thank you!
We already had one for our kids and I got these as Christmas gifts for our godchildren! Love them!
