I would NOT recommend this book to be in an elementary or middle school library based on the historical forthrightness of some of the rhymes. For example, in chapter one, there is a short rhyme that jokes about burning the Pope (which also calls him a fagot). Also in this chapter, there is a list showing how many times murder, violence, etc, is mentioned in the mother goose rhymes in attempt of spurring a nursery rhyme reformation.

Nursery Rhymes were blunter back in the day. My young grandsons fall to the floor laughing when I recite "Little Robin Redbreast sat on a pole. Niddle noddle went his head and poop went his hole."
