As this collection adeptly illustrates, nursery rhymes

not only evoke innocence, discovery, and joy for

children of all ages, but they also can educate and

celebrate tradition. Ring Around the Moon features

original rhyming poems in a time-honored

Appalachian style that acknowledges

the importance of the region and its rich

heritage while introducing readers to the

whimsical and enchanting world of Mommy Goose.


With Kentucky-flavored language and subject

matter, this volume brings together the words,

art, and music of Appalachia. The poems

present classic Appalachian subjects --

leaving the homeplace to find work, mountain

folklore country life versus city life --

and touch on a wide range of broader

themes, such as bullying, gender roles, the power

of language, and the power of kindness.

This work is illustrated with more than

170 hand-painted carvings by renowned

folk artist Minnie Adkins, often referred

to as America's most important female wood carver.

With sheet music for the original song

"Ring Around the Moon" complementing

the text, this multifaceted book entertains while

capturing the spirit and expanding the range

of traditional Appalachian nursery rhymes

to reach a new generation of readers.
