Childhood Rhymes for Modern Times

Lynn Garthwaite


Publication Date:  April 13, 2021


For parents and grandparents who grew up reading nursery rhymes in which all of the children looked alike and had terrible tendencies to fall and break their crowns, to find food cupboards empty, or to watch farmer’s wives cut off mice tails … this is a more inclusive and less scary book of rhymes.


All children need to see themselves as a part of a community. Let’s never allow them to feel otherwise.
