    It saddens me somewhat that this list contains so many of the more modern children’s rhymes. I wonder if it is a reflection of a dwindling knowledge of old traditional rhymes and children’s games. We sing a great variety of any nursery rhymes that I can remember from my own childhood to our grandchildren, often making up little ‘plays’ – such as for ‘Little Boy Blue’. The Opies wrote several books about nursery rhymes, and their origins, and I am hopeful that we can share that with my grand-daughter when she is older. She already knows a wide variety of rhymes at three and a half. Of course, she sings the more modern ones at school!
