What if Jack and Jill had been playing on a nice soft sand dune instead of that treacherous hill? And suppose Mary's pet wasn't really a lamb. What if Mary had a little . . . clam? Those questions — and more — are gleefully answered in Mother Osprey: Nursery Rhymes for Buoys & Gulls. This collection retells Mother Goose rhymes and celebrates America’s coastlines and waterways — from sea to shining sea. Young readers will meet playful pelicans, seagulls and otters. They’ll ride wild island ponies, meet pirates, and hopefully, they’ll learn the important difference between “orca” and “okra.” With clever twists on old standards, Mother Osprey is a salute to sea breezes, sand, and just plain silliness.
