Paperback – 10 Rhymes


Children love rhymes and songs! This book is a collection of rhymes that are intended to be recited using the tunes of traditional nursery rhymes. There are about 10 rhymes in total and each one is marked with the tune of the song its supposed to be sung with. I am not familiar with all the tunes mentioned and so have made up some of my own!

This is good resource for young children, who learn best by repetition. My favourites are Helpful Hannah and The Muslims Round the World.
