I have a new book to share with you. This time it’s not for you as a wife or mother, but for your children, although I know you’ll enjoy it too. It’s called “Nanny’s Nursery Rhymes for a New Millennium.”
I have always loved nursery rhymes. I loved them as a child and learned most of them by heart. I loved reciting them to our children and they learned them by heart. When looking for children’s books, I looked for those written in rhyme. They are much more fun to read and for the children to listen to. Nursery rhymes are very important for brain and language development. They build memory capabilities, improve oral language skills, and best of all, they are fun and easy to learn. Rhymes provide a certain type of music to the child’s ear. Little children’s eyes light up when they quote rhymes in a singsong meter.
Will you forgive me for saying that I believe children are deprived who are not raised on nursery rhymes? However, although I love the traditional nursery rhymes because of their rhyme and meter, I have not always enjoyed the content. Who likes reading about a mother who whips all her children and sends them to bed without any supper? Who likes reading about the baby and cradle that falls from the tree (although, unbelievably I’ve sung it to my babies hundreds of times). Who likes reading about tripping up a man with bandy legs so he falls on his nose?
Are these the values we want to teach our children? Therefore, my daughters and I decided to write new nursery rhymes-over 60 rhymes with positive content that relate to children in our 21st century. You will find lots of variety. Some are funny, some are about things children love to do, and others instill in them the good things we want to see in our children-to be happy, obedient, smiling, truthspeaking, and to have good work attitudes.
You won’t want to be without this book. It will bring your children hours of pleasure and they will be blessed and inspired at the same time. I have printed this delightfully illustrated book in hard cover (a little more expensive) but important for a nursery rhyme book that lasts generations.

sorry, We have not had an opportunity to read any of the rhymes to the children at their meetings. Our Church outreach into the community has a Mainly Music and Kids Play group meeting each for under 5 year olds, once a week.Just started again after a holiday break.
I like what I have read.

The children and I look forward to reading this book. It's great to read some each day. Because there are so many rhymes it teaches the children patience to wait til the next day to read more and also gives them something to look forward to. There's teaching but it's great that we have a laugh too. Thank you.
