Science tells us that babies develop best when they are spoken to, sung to, and read to. Introduce your baby to a world of words and pictures with these 30 classic nursery rhymes from the Mother Goose collection and beyond paired with images of Chloe Giordano’s delightful hand-embroidered illustrations on cloth.
Even when they’re tiny, the sound of their parents’ voices helps babies make sense of the world and feel comfortable with new people and places. This treasury gives you the opportunity to rediscover just how useful (and calming) these best-loved nursery rhymes are in one, handsome volume.
Bond with your baby and help them grow as you recite and sing these timeless rhymes:
Hey, Diddle Diddle; Baa, Baa, Black Sheep; This Little Piggy; Hush Little Baby; Hickory, Dickory, Dock; Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star; Little Bo-Peep; Pussy-cat, Pussy-cat; Row, Row, Row Your Boat; The Itsy Bitsy Spider; London Bridge; Mary Had a Little Lamb; One, Two, Buckle My Shoe; Humpty Dumpty; Rub-a-dub-dub; Pat-a-Cake; I Saw a Ship A-Sailing; Old MacDonald; Rock-a-Bye Baby; The Wheels on the Bus; I’m a Little Teapot; This Old Man; Jack and Jill; The Muffin Man; Little Miss Muffet; The Owl and the Pussy-cat; Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush; Old Mother Hubbard; Pop! Goes the Weasel; Are you Sleeping?
My baby is used to watch most of rhymes in YouTube. She loves colors and music. I admit, I’m terrible singer. I’m used to reading to her random things, sometimes, novels too but this was first time I sang her rhymes and I must say it was fun reading to her.
She loved Twinkle Twinkle, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Humpty Dumpty, Old MacDonald, Are You Sleeping, and The Wheels On The Bus.
All rhymes were cute and nice, some I knew and some were new to me. They were short, took little time for me to finish. I didn’t read her everyday, like title suggests, I read all of them in one day. 😜
If you don’t remember all rhymes from your childhood and you want to sing to your kid with a colorful book and cute illustrations, I recommend this book. It can be a nice gift for new mommies.
As I was playing some rhymes on YouTube before I read this book, I could see some rhymes in this had lesser verses, some had only 1 verse.
overall, it was good collection, with beautiful art and vibrant colors . It is best gift for new mommies.
