Join us for a special story time event with Vermont author and illustrator Tracey Campbell Pearson!
Mother Goose herself invites kids to come out to play with all their favorite nursery rhyme characters in this popular Mother Goose rhyme.
Girls and boys, come out to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day.
Parents looking for bedtime stories with a fresh twist on a familiar nursery rhyme need look no further. Using the popular Girls and Boys Come Out to Play Mother Goose poem as a backdrop, illustrator Tracey Campbell Pearson spins an exciting visual narrative in which Mother Goose invites children on a city block to come out and play, taking them on a moonlit adventure in verse. Young readers will love poring over Tracey’s richly detailed artwork full of diverse kids, animals, and beloved nursery rhyme characters, including Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, and Old King Cole. After the fun is over, Mother Goose leads everyone home to sleep snug in their beds.
Tracey Campbell Pearson has written and illustrated many books for children, including The Moon by Robert Louis Stevenson which was a Booklist Editor’s Choice and a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year and Elephant’s Story, which was an ABC Best Book for Children. She lives in Vermont.
