Nursery rhymes are timeless. Whether you know them all or just a few, parents have been sharing them with children for centuries. And there's a reason: they help develop language skills! Rhyme and rhythm help babies learn to distinguish sounds even before they know what the words mean! That's why so many nursery rhymes are pure nonsense! That means you can pick the nursery rhyme books that give you a giggle. Pick the ones with illustrations that you and your child will appreciate too. Also, you'll be surprised at what some old authors and illustrators turned into rhyme. Fairy tales! Aesop's Fables! Check them out!!!
