Nursery rhymes are a fun way for children to learn while playing, dancing and singing. When set to music they help with a child’s development and are an amazing teaching tool. For example, they help children develop language skills by featuring different sounds in the English language.
Nursery rhymes were introduced in North America in the mid-18th century and are sometimes also know as Mother Goose rhymes.
