Have vague recollections of nursery rhymes from your childhood - but certainly can't remember the words? Well this book will take you part of the way there - it'll at least give you the words. Unfortunately you'll have to head to the web to find the tune to go with it!

The illustrations in this 1966 version of Mother Goose by Raymond Briggs are, as you would expect, a highlight.

Like all oral traditions there are certainly minor differences between some of the nursery rhymes I learnt as a child in Australia, and these earlier, British, versions eg:
I say Inci Winci spider - Raymond prefers Ipsey Wipsey
I say the Grand Old Duke of York - Raymond prefers Brave Old Duke of York
I say Rock-a-bye, baby, on the tree top - Raymond prefers Hush-a-bye, baby, on the tree top

But overall a very handy book to expand my repertoire from just Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star and Baa Baa Black Sheep!
