Mary Had a Little Lamb

by Sarah Josepha Hale
Illustrated by Bruce McMillan

Published by Scholastic / Hardcover, 1990
32 pages
ISBN: 0-590-43773-9

Ages 3-7

A modern interpretation is given to the familiar nursery rhyme as McMillan's clearly reproduced color photographs show Mary as a contemporary rural African-American child. An afterword provides a history of the rhyme, full text of the original 1830 version and a sample lesson from an 1857 McGuffey Reader which used the rhyme to teach reading.
