Nursery Songs And Rhymes

Nursery songs are so important in childhood as they help create all those special family moments that build bonds.

Songs sung in the Nursery, in the bathroom with a baby or child, in the sun on a rug, in the back of the car ... can be an important part of their development.

Here is a growing collection of the best nursery rhymes and songs.

My favourite is Humpty Dumpty, which as a child was complete nonsense, and still is I think. It was a lot of fun when we did the actions in the bath tub.

Some more of my favourites are:

Mother Goose rhymes

Jack and Jill
