This timeless selection of over 100 favorite nursery rhymes is perfect to share with your little one.
If there was a mandatory reading list of books for babies and toddlers, I think Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes would be a top pick. Mother Goose stories and rhymes were popularized in the 1700s in English-language literature, and referenced as early as the 1620s in French literature. There are conflicting reports that Mother Goose was actually a real person named Elizabeth Foster Goose (1665-1758) who lived in Boston, Massachusetts and was supposed to be famous for telling children’s stories. Whatever the true story of Mother Goose is, we do know that the first publication of her fairy tales came out in 1695 a under the name Histoires ou contes du temps passés, avec des moralités, and her fairy tales and nursery rhymes were introduced world wide. Can you imagine never knowing about Humpty Dumpty, Little Jack Horner and Little Miss Muffett? WOW.
The beautiful new canvas-covered book by called A Collection of Nursery Rhymes is a wonderful collection of over 100 nursery rhymes that were all very familiar to me. It was fun to read this book to the girls and the book is broken down into four types of nursery rhymes. Our favorite section was the “Action Rhymes” that includes fun instructions of movement for rhymes such as “Pat-A-Cake, Pat-A-Cake” and “Tommy Thumbs”. It’s an easy book to read and reading a few of the rhymes at a time are fun for repetition for little Brie. She is all about learning words and sentences to songs and stories now, so is a perfect way for kids to memorize new rhymes to expand their language. I continue to be impressed by Parragon’s collection of early educational books and love their fun illustrations and meaningful material. Great book!
