I have noticed that fewer children are able to repeat many traditional nursery rhymes. Many are tied to music. But, I found a source that is helping keep them alive. The “Nursery Rhyme Songbook: A Delightful collection of Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Stories” is published by Amsco Publication. Containing 35 songs, 3 poems, and 5 stories, this book would make a great starter for a parents library to share with a child as well as being a great resource book for childcare providers.
Most of the stories and songs are familiar and traditional with simple, colorful illustrations. The songs are presented in a format playable on piano, guitar, or autoharp. The poems are short, anonymous rhymes sure to delight both child and adult.
Check out this singable book and enjoy some traditional fun.
