How are you celebrating National Nursery Rhyme week? Will you be singing and reading stories? Do you have any favourite picture books with nursery rhyme characters in them?
Many of our favourite characters are hidden in stories on our bookshelf. Wolves, bears, princesses and well known characters like Goldilocks, Cinderella and Mother Hubbard. These are just a few of our favourite stories…
Each Peach Pear Plum by Janet and Allan Ahlberg: We’ll be looking carefully for the nursery rhyme characters hiding in the illustrations.
The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg: We’ll be reading the letters that the nursery rhyme characters receive.
The Fairytale Hairdresser by Abie Longstaff and Lauren Beard: We’ll be looking for the nursery rhyme characters that are visiting Kitty Lacey’s hair salon.
What’s the Time, Mr Wolf? by Debi Gliori: We’ll be looking out for all the nursery rhyme characters that Mr Wolf meets during his busy day (and putting our fingers in our ears when the cat starts playing his fiddle!).
Usborne Nursery Rhyme Songbook by Caroline Hopper and Radhi Parekh: We’ll be playing and singing some of our favourite nursery rhymes.
