According to the Mother Goose Society:  "Mother Goose Day was founded in 1987 by Gloria T. Delamar in tandem with the publication of her book, Mother Goose; From Nursery to Literature.

Mother Goose Day was created only recently, as a day to appreciate nursery rhymes and stories. They are a favorite of children and their parents.

The term "Mother Goose" dates back to the 1650's. It refered to stories like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty. It does not appear to represent a particular person, as many of "Mother Goose" stories were written both before and after this term was first used. And, the stories were written by numerous authors.

Mother Goose Day is observed on May 01. Mother Goose Day was founded in 1987 by Gloria T. Delamar in tandem with the publication of her book, "Mother Goose; From Nursery to Literature". It is a day to appreciate nursery rhymes and stories. The familiar figure of Mother Goose is an imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes which are often published as Mother Goose Rhymes. As a character, she appears in one "nursery rhyme". Mother Goose is generally depicted in literature and book illustration as an elderly country woman in a tall hat and shawl, a costume identical to the peasant costume worn in Wales in the early 20th century, but is sometimes depicted as a goose, usually wearing a bonnet.

Enjoy "Mother  Goose Day" by reading Mother Goose stories and rhymes to your children or grandchildren.
