Ah, Valentine’s Day. The sexiest, sultriest, most romantic day of the year for childless couples everywhere. For the rest of us, however, it’s a 24-hour period filled with just as many tears, tantrums and wet-wipe-necessitating messes as any other.

The Original Mother Goose, illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright, is a collection of nursery rhymes that has been sitting on our daughter’s bookshelf since before she was born. It’s a big, heavy, hardbound thing with pages pretty enough to make you worry about them getting ripped apart whenever your youngster starts flipping through it.
