Children's books play a critical role in building a child's worldview, introducing new vocabulary, and imparting moral lessons with examples from young readers' own contextual world. Yet there is a serious need for a perspective more attuned to the cultural and verbal complexities of Appalachia's young readership. Mommy Goose's Appalachian Melodies fills the gaps in children's literature by carving a space for readers to delight in language and the richness of music and storytelling in the region.
Each lyrical poem and nursery rhyme, in tandem with whimsical and vibrant wood carvings, taps into the world of natural wonder and domestic charm. Revealed is a world populated with people, farm animals, wildlife, and nature that is equally familiar and fantastic to Appalachian children. The quaint and heartwarming poems address lessons of kindness, acceptance, and respect, while not shying away from poignant glimpses of life's harsh realities. This colorful collection celebrates the art, language, and culture of Appalachia and creates a unique and magical world—for children of all ages.
