A much-needed remedial course in nursery rhymes for the modern parent, who wants to sing to his or her baby but can't remember what happened to Little Jack Horner, Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, and Little Miss Muffet, not to mention the intricate finger game of finding Thumbkin. Here are 80 classic poems, songs, lullabies, rounds, and riddles---all the words a parent needs for bedtime and playtime!--with downloadable music for singing along.

Because it’s two o'clock in the morning and you can’t remember “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”

Once upon a time, every parent knew Little Jack Horner, Wee Willie Winkie, and Little Miss Muffet. Now you will, too, with this crash course on timeless pleasures of Mother Goose and beyond. It features more than 70 poems, lullabies, rounds, and riddles, from classics like “Hey Diddle Diddle,” to newer songs like “The Wheels on the Bus,” too wonderful non-English versus including “Pío, Pío, Pío,” the sweet yet dramatic Chilean ditty about chickens. Plus, exactly how to perform the intricate finger ballet known as “Itsy Bitsy Spider.” Includes downloadable recordings.
