Our precious little great-granddaughter will be here in just five short weeks, we are beyond excited.
I have always loved traditional nursery rhymes, and remember learning them in nursery school at the tender age of four..
I believe they have led to my lifelong love and appreciation of poetry and prose.
I'm hoping little Ensley Kate, will share that same fondness.
Oh what fun you'll have...poems and songs are always FUN!
Congratulations on your great-granddaughter! What a sweet book for her. I always loved nursery rhymes too. I think they are wonderful for a child.
What good news that a great grandchild is coming. I love this book. I saved all my children’s books and move them with us. I collect books that have great illustrations just because of their artistic value.
One of my favorite quotations is this:
"Child of pure unclouded brow and dreaming eyes of wonder,
Tho time be fleet and I and thou are half a life asunder,
They loving smile shall surely hail
The love gift of a fairy tale."
If memory serves, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote that.
How sweet it is!
Oh my …
You are going to have the sweetest time with your new great-granddaughter.
What a lovely book that looks and nursery rhymes are such fun.
All the best Jan
I know you can't wait to hold her. You do have a rocking chair? :) I love nursery rhymes too and so did my mother. Not long before she died, I found her a big old Mother Goose nursery rhyme book. She enjoyed it so much.
Jo, Oh the excitement of a new baby and the great joy in our hearts to hold them. Reading or giving a gift of reading is the best. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
