MGOL Mother Goose on the


“Mother Goose on the Loose” is an award-winning early literacy program that is used in libraries around the country. The use of books, songs, nursery rhymes, art, play, and puppets helps parents strengthen early literacy development and school readiness in their children.

This app brings those activities to the iPad in a gentle learning environment perfectly suited for children to explore with their parents. Sing along with songs and nursery rhymes while moving objects and characters on the “felt board” backdrop. In addition, you can use the characters and backgrounds to create original stories or songs together.

The app also provides suggestions for learning activities to extend the fun.
