Abstract: Mother Goose has long been a beloved character in children’s literature. With her origins steeped in European folklore, she is most commonly portrayed as an elderly woman with a tall hat who flies through the skies on a large gander. She is also depicted as an actual goose. In either case, her literary role has been to recount moralistic tales to generations of children.
