Nursery Rhymes – Here are 10 of our favourites

Have you ever gone along to a baby/toddler group and they’ve started singing some nursery rhymes that you just don’t know. In fact, you’d never even heard of and had no idea that it they even existed?

That happened to me. Quite a few times to be fair. As such, I thought I should do some research into the different nursery rhymes that exist. My first question was, why are there so many! Some are exactly the same, but just change the animal. Others are the same musically, but the lyrics are completely different. There are even some that I thought I knew, but apparently, had the wrong words. That was embarassing singing that one.

So it got me thinking. I’d been wanting to come up with my first weekly series. What better idea than share with you all some of our favourite nursery rhymes. Now, this isn’t going to be a simple list. My intention is to give a title, lyrics and a bit of background to each one. If you’re lucky, you might even get a Youtube video (not of me singing it though). I’ll be updating the list with a link to each new post once released.

Thanks for reading and let me know what nursery rhymes you and your children love
