One, Two, Three, Four, Mary at the Cottage Door: an Illustrated and Singable Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme

Posted on: September 9, 2016

Janet and Anne Graham Johnstone have books of the most wonderful illustrations for Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes.  The pictures alone, so gorgeous, they make me want to sing the rhymes.  If only someone would make closes like the ones painted by the illustrator sisters, I would buy them out!

This is one of the rhymes I found (which I’d never heard of before leafing through the book and finding the sisters’ illustration of it) in Janet and Anne Graham Johnstone’s illustrations for  Dean’s Mother Goose Book of Rhymes (1977).  I wanted to sing it just from seeing the picture and then a little tune for it popped right into my head.
