The twenty-four nursery rhymes found here were culled from out-of-print books or “rescued from memories of older people.” Most are long and filled with the jingling and sturdy humor of traditional nursery rhymes. They are illustrated with vigorous drawings in black and green. Simple music is given for those rhymes that have tunes.

Writing of his mother and father and their mothers and fathers, Lawson says they, like the ancestors of many others, were never famous but were “strong and good” and helped to build America. Line-and-brush drawings are sometimes humorous but more often depict the strength and goodness of the land and its people.

The Highland relatives want Wee Gillis to stalk stags with them. The Lowland relatives want him to tend the cows. After years of doing both, Wee Gillis has powerful lungs from calling the cows, and he has learned to sit very still from stalking stags— just the skills needed to play a bagpipe! Line drawings sparkle with humorous spirit.
