The babes of former generations were certainly lucky, for they possessed quite the best book of nursery rhymes which has ever been published. "The Nursery Rhyme Book" by Andrew Lang and illustrated by L. Leslie Brooke is a complete collection of the old nursery rhymes which have delighted so many generations, adorned with attractive pictures and accompanied by a preface written in one of Mr. Lang's most engaging moods. The preface, of course, is not for the little ones, but for the mothers, whose duty it is to read the rhymes- and show the pictures. We do not know [says Mr. Lang] what poets wrote the old nursery rhymes, but certainly some of them were written down, or even printed, three hundred years ago. Grandmothers have sung them to their grandchildren, and they again to theirs, for many centuries. We did not know till we studied Mr. Lang's table of contents that nursery rhymes may be divided into fourteen different kinds ; but they may, and Mr. Lang gives them all and discourses sweetly on many of them. No nursery which respects itself should be without this fascinating book. This book is fully illustrated and annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer.

This book uncovers the Secret History of Nursery Rhymes. Many of the ... origins of the humble nursery rhyme are believed to be associated with actual events in history, with references to murder and persecution, betrayal, greed and to tyrants and royalty. Rhymes are usually short and therefore easy to remember, a critical factor during the times when many people were unable to read or write. They were passed verbally from one generation to the next before the invention of the printing press. Reciting old Nursery Rhymes to our children is one of the most pleasurable first steps to developing their language skills and extending their vocabulary.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.0, University of Duisburg-Essen, 6 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction Nursery rhymes have a long tradition in Great Britain. Adults still remember the short verses their parents have told them when they were children. So these rhymes are part of the English culture. In English lessons German pupils in primary school also have to learn about the English culture so that they get an impression of children's life in a foreign country. Cultural awareness is part of the curriculum. Nursery Rhymes are important in English children's life. So German children have to learn about it. Rhyme, rhythm and chunks are useful for language learning. The rhymes help the children to get to know the English sentence structure. These arguments show that young people who want to become a primary teacher have to know about nursery rhymes. Where do they come from? What is so fascinating about them? Are they useful in the primary classroom? In this essay I would like to find out about it. 2. The origin of nursery rhymes Nursery rhymes are oral literature children are confronted with. First - when they are still babies - their mothers sing lullabies to them. Here the tune is more important than the words (vgl. Opie, 2002, page 177).
