===Story=== Tired of inane sing-along videos with cheesy music and a lack of cohesiveness? The ''Mother Goose Treasury, Vol. 2'' features fully orchestrated songs, elaborate costuming, bright backgrounds, and even a story line! The scatterbrained Mother Goose and her young gosling Bertram are headed to town to complete some grocery shopping. Along the way they encounter a plethora of famous Mother Goose characters, including Jack (as in "Jack be nimble, Jack be quick"), Miss Muffet, Mary (and her lamb), Humpty Dumpty, and Simple Simon. Each encounter elicits a recitation of the appropriate story, either in song or verse, complete with choreography, puppetry, and onscreen subtitles. The "puppetronic" technology deserves special mention--it brings the puppetry to life and is suggestive of Jim Henson's Muppet productions. Joining the puppets is a large cast of human actors who sing, dance, and generally enthrall audiences from 3 to 8 years old. This volume offers 58 minutes of sing-along fun that kids will request repeatedly. For more Mother Goose sing-alongs, check out ''Mother Goose Treasury, Vol. 1''. ''--Tami Horiuchi''
