A Collection Of Nursery Rhymes : Book Review

Back in June when I was lucky enough to attend Britmums Live  I got talking to the lovely team from Parragon books. I was lucky enough to be given some of the little learners books for my little two to review, and they absolutely loved them. So when I was offered the chance to become one of the Parragon book buddies I jumped at the chance as it means I get to review a Parragon book each month on my blog. I adore reading and hope that my love of reading gets passed down to my own children. 

The first Book Buddies book that we were sent was an adorable book called A Collection Of Nursery Rhymes from the cute as a button range. As the name suggest this book is a timeless selection of over 100 nursery rhymes, many of which I remember fondly from my own childhood. With classics such as round and round the garden, three blind mice, hush little baby and my children's favourite Their was an old lady.

The perfect bedtime story book for babies.
The book is broken down into sections such as action, animal, counting and bedtime which is displayed at the front of the book with the page number next to it, making it easy for parents to pick out a rhyme to sing. We have found lots of new rhymes that we did not know before and also many that I had forgotten about and which I have loved rediscovering again with my own children. 

Five little ducks 
What makes this book so special is that it is simply gorgeous, it is a A4 sized hard back padded book with over one hundred pages filled with the most gorgeous illustrations to accompany each nursery rhyme. The illustrations look like fabric cut outs that have been stitched onto the pages and the effect is perfect for a nursery rhyme book. 

Five little monkeys 
The whole look and feel of this book is special from the amazing illustrations and the cute and timeless rhymes to the fantastic quality of the book as a whole. I think that this book would make a perfect present for a new baby or as a christening, birthday or Christmas present. My own children are one and two years old and they absolutely love this book and I just know that they will continue to love it and get many more years of enjoyment from it.

You can buy your own copy of A Collection Of Nursery Rhymes priced at just £7.99 from Tesco, TK Maxx, The Works and Easons. And you can find out more about this wonderful book on the Parragon website.

Disclosure : We were sent this book for the purpose of this review , however all views are my own.
