‘Research has shown that nursery rhymes are hugely important for the development of children’s spoken language and-when they’re older-their literacy skills. The simple rhythms and rhymes tune infant ears to the sounds of language-essential for clear articulation and, later, for appreciation of phonics. Not only that-they’re fun too!’
– Sue Palmer, author of Toxic Childhood
Thoughtfully compiled story on CD that brings together many antique fabrics, this is a truly nostalgic Mother Goose CD will be a amazing addition to story time.
‘Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such fun,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.’
