Mother Goose and Nursery Rhymes with Individually Illustrated Singable Picture Books

Posted on: August 23, 2013

This list contains rhymes which have gotten their own illustrations in bound books.  There will be many more than what I’ve compiled here.  This is just a list of singable illustrated rhymes that I’ve been able to compile so far.  The books in a complete list of these titles could easily fill a library.  Since one has to start somewhere, and since there are so many wonderful singable illustrated rhymes to enjoy…HERE WE GO:
