May 1st International Mother Goose Day

Who of us hasn’t spent some time with Mother Goose? Stories like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Little Red Riding Hood, created back in the 1650’s have become a part of our lives. They more than likely were stories handed down over the centuries before someone finally wrote them down. I am sure they have been altered some from the when the stories were first told but, like nearly any form of art, they have probably been made better by the edits. The day was created by Gloria T. DeLamar after publishing her own version of Mother Goose.

How to celebrate – Re-read Mother Goose. Dress up like Mother Goose and read stories to children. Start a Mother Goose club.
