Count von Count helps Little Bo Peep count her sheep, Little Bird climbed up the clock, and Ernie is Old King Cole.

Bert is Peter Piper, polishing paper clips. Oscar the Grouch is Little Jack Horner, eating some anchovy pie. Betty Lou is Little Miss Muffet, inviting the spider to sit down beside her.

In other news, Prairie had a little lamb.


The book was reissued as part of the "Big Bird's Favorites Board Books" series in 2000. (ISBN 0375805419)

It was also reissued in 2017 as a Little Golden Book, under the title Elmo's Mother Goose Rhymes.
