NANNY'S NURSERY RHYMES FOR A NEW MILLENNIUM is a nursery rhyme book with over 60 original rhymes. Nursery rhymes should be a part of life for every young child. They should grow up hearing, learning and reciting them. Nursery rhymes are very important for brain development. They build memory capabilities, improve oral language skills and best of all are fun and easy to learn. Rhymes provide a type of music to the child's ear. Little children's eyes light up when they quote rhymes in a singsong meter. However although the traditional nursery rhymes are very beneficial for their rhyme and meter, they don't always have desirable content. Who likes reading about a mother who whips all her children and sends them to bed without any supper? Who likes reading about the baby and cradle that falls from the tree? Who likes reading about tripping up a man with bandy legs so he falls on his nose? Are these the values we want to teach our children?
Many of them are very archaic and most times both mother and baby have no idea what they are talking about.
It is time for some new nursery rhymes! Nancy Campbell (mother, grandmother and great-grandmother) and two of her daughters have written a new set of nursery rhymes. Rhymes with positive content that relate to children in the 21st century. There is a great variety. Some are funny, some are about things children love to do, and others instill good qualities, the things parents would like to see in their children. To be happy, obedient, smiling, truthful, and to have good work attitudes.
This book not only gives children the benefit of enjoying the fun of listening to rhyme and meter, but also instills good character qualities into their lives.
