Generations of children have learnt from nursery rhymes how to count, tell the time, name different colours and shapes – all sorts of things. And because the words are easy to remember, they love to join in and teach you what they’ve learnt.
Here’s a clever new collection with lots of surprises. Traditional songs such as ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’, ‘Jack and Jill’ and ‘Mary had a Little Lamb’, new versions, and some original rhymes chosen or written by popular children’s book presenter and writer Mark Macleod, all set to music by concert and TV favourite Peter Sullivan. The perfect audio collection for the whole family to enjoy!
Aside from being pleasant to the ear, nursery rhymes are a valuable tool for young children, helping them to verbalize, count, read, and other important developmental steps. Mark Macleod brings together classic nursery rhymes like "Mary Had A Little Lamb", "Rub-a-dub-dub", and "This Old Man" - as well as some of his own originals - in a rousing set that Peter Sullivan gives a bouncy musical score. Andrea Lees, Louie Lee Feltrin, and Ellie Jean lead children with their infectious vocals, and the trio also encourages your little ones to sing along with them as they learn these rhymes.
