Nursery rhymes

My girls received a video of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes. Some rhymes are simply animated while others are both animated and set to music. All three girls love that video!

After seeing their enjoyment, I realized that I had neglected to teach them the nursery rhymes I took for granted: "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep"; "Old Mother Hubbard"; "Old King Cole"; "Jack and Jill"; "Rock-a-Bye, Baby"; "Little Boy Blue"; and many others recall fond memories of my childhood.

Nursery rhymes are great tools for teaching a young child basic facts such as counting, ABC's, body parts, and vocabulary. The use of rhyme and rhythm aids memorization. If you can't recall or just never learned the classic nursery rhymes, I can show you where to go for help.

What are some of your child's favorite rhymes?

Hey, Michelle,
I'm glad to see you here again, and you are quite welcome for the links. My children love both of the ones Kayla loves. My middle daughter was "playing" my piano and singing Twinkle, Twinkle the other day. I loved it!

Hey, Nicole,
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I've seen you over at The New Parent before, and I appreciate your contribution. I WISH I could say my children hate Barney. :) They don't get to watch him too often. My opinion is that nursery rhymes and reading are much better for children than all these TV shows. Too bad I don't practice that belief! :)
