Rating/Response 1-5: 3, I did not really like reading this Mother Goose book compared to all the others I have read previously. I did however like that this book contains several Mother Goose Rhymes, and the illustrations in the book are quite interesting to look at.

Text-Dependent Question: When looking at the illustration for the rhyme Old King Cole does King Cole look like a mean king or a nice king? Does it look like his servants like serving King Cole? What can you infer about the King when looking at the illustration?
