Scottish Nursery Rhymes

Regular price £9.99 Sale

The first thing most children learn by heart is a nursery rhyme - a potent mixture of rhythm, sound, language, story, music, morals, and nonsense, with the ability to traverse centuries and continents (Frog Went A-Courtin was published in Scotland in 1548, and was being sung by Peg Leg Sam in America in the 1970s). Here are over 200 traditional rhymes from all over Scotland - games, counting rhymes, songs, lullabies, riddles, toasts - to fit every occasion, gathered and edited by folklorists Norah and William Montgomerie.
