Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Posted by Diana on Friday Dec 17, 2010 Under Baby Books


Babies adore nursery rhymes, especially those recited by a parent with an animated voice and face.  Hand actions are an added bonus in nursery rhymes like Incy Wincy Spider and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. My baby’s face lights up when we sing Patty Cake together and surprisingly The Grand Old Duke of York.

I recommend Mother Goose Treasury by Raymond Briggs as a comprehensive collection of nursery rhymes. The illustrations are fun and I’ve found nursery rhymes I remember from my childhood, just by flicking through the pages.

We recently received the Mother Goose Treasury as a gift and it has provided baby with an endless supply of enchanting entertainment. Books definitely make great gifts for baby this Christmas – what are some of your favourites?
