Mother Goose nursery rhymes have been part of our Western oral tradition for hundreds of years, and is not known to be a real historical figure. In fact (according to Wikipedia) she has been associated with nursery rhymes as early as 1628 in France. On the other hand, according to Eleanor Early, a Boston travel writer of the 1930s and ’40s, Mother Goose was a Bostonian of the 1660s with dozens of children and grandchildren. Whether she’s real or imaginary, Mother Goose nursery rhymes and their sing-songy rhythms are a staple of childhood.

Enchanted Learning: Rebus Rhymes: Mother Goose and Others

Enchanted Learning has more than a hundred nursery rhymes illustrated with pictograms. From “Ants Go Marching” to “Yankee Doodle,” the nursery rhymes are grouped by topic and also listed alphabetically. These pages are not in PDF, so printing will include all the extraneous stuff from the web page. And although they are called rebus stories, there are no missing words in the rhymes. The pictures simply illustrate the rhyme.
