Mary Engelbreit's Mother Goose: One Hundred Best-Loved Verses
Mary Engelbreit

September 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Score one for tradition. For listeners seeking a classic collection of the beloved nursery rhymes, this volume collected by author/artist Engelbreit and read in a bright and inviting tone by Redgrave will be the perfect cup of tea. The British actress is an inspired choice here, providing crisp pronunciation and lilting rhythm throughout. Cheery and playful without being silly, her performance catches all the fun-to-say and fun-to-hear elements of the verse. Marcus leads off with his praise of Mother Goose's ability to encourage children's love of language. From there, Redgrave's reading is largely unfettered, with brief pauses between each rhyme and a snippet of guitar instrumentals nestled after every 10selections. The recording works fine as a standalone, but may also serve as a read-along...

Book Description
When Mary visited longtime friend Terry Lee Bilsky, she was delighted by a cross-stitch that was hanging in Terry's guest room. It was a gift from Terry's Aunt Gladys. The poem on the cross-stitch (now eighty years old) reads: Guest: You are welcome here, be at your ease. Get up when you're ready, go to bed when you please. Happy to share with you, such as we got: The leaks in the roof, the soup in the pot. You don't have to thank us or laugh at our jokes, Sit deep and come often, you're one of the folks. Mary's heartwarming illustrations team up with Terry's comforting words to re-create her family's heirloom cross-stitch on the pages of this unique guest book. Every Mary fan will want to keep it close at hand!

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K–Ann Estelle wants a hat full of ribbons and flowers that would make her the Queen of Easter at the neighborhood parade. Instead, her mother buys her a plain straw hat. Disappointed, the child leaves it outside on the porch. Days later, when her family discovers a robins nest inside it, Ann Estelle seizes the opportunity to trim last years hat, decorating it with a nest and three blue candy eggs. The secular nature of an Easter parade is juxtaposed with the hatching of the robins eggs, making this a book that simply celebrates spring. The highly defined line drawings are filled with vibrant color and warmth. A border of Easter eggs runs across the top of each page, while the bottom border changes motifs–hats, birds, flowers, and hatching eggs. A card-stock paper-doll cutout of Ann...

PreSchool-Grade 2–The star of Queen of Christmas (2003) and Queen of the Class (2004, both HarperCollins) is back for one of her favorite holidays. Ann Estelle's class is decorating boxes to hold their valentines, and she does not want hers to be ordinary.

Queen of Christmas (Ann Estelle Stories)

Book Review
Greeting card designer Mary Engelbreit, who transitioned into picture book illustrator with best-selling The Night Before Christmas, pens the first of a series of stories about likable young Ann Estelle. Ann, the self-appointed Queen of Christmas, has been working on "The List" since just after Christmas last year. After all, if she forgets anything, "that would make Christmas not quite as wonderful as it should be." So, although she has a marvelous time ice-skating with Grandma, perhaps a sparkly red skating outfit would make it better. And going sledding with her father on his old wooden sled is great, but still, it might be nice to have a brand-new plastic one.

It might sound as though Ann Estelle should really be called the Spoiled Princess of Christmas, but in truth, she’s just a normal little girl bedazzled...

Here, Engelbreit shares the philosophy she follows in life: "It's your house and it should be filled with the things and the colors that make you feel good." Rather than writing a step-by-step decorating book following the basic rules, the author offers a multitude of creative ideas using color illustrations with minimal text. This fun, whimsical book covers many different areas of the house-kitchens, fireplaces, children's rooms, windows, walls and pictures, and more. Recommended as an accessory to basic home decorating collections.Barbara Bartos, St. Croix Central, Roberts, Wis.Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.
