We love nursery rhymes in our house. When my daughter was newborn, I was amazed at how so many songs came flooding back to me. They must have been stored away in my subconscious from when I was a child, just waiting for me to become a mummy!
I was a bit annoyed to learn that my daughter's pre-school has taught her to sing "Twinkle, twinkle chocolate bar...", but on the whole nursery rhymes are great - from bonding with your new baby, settling them to sleep and more recently keeping her occupied on car journeys (how many verses of Old MacDonald can you sing before going slightly crazy?)
Anyway, you lucky lucky people, on the theme of nursery rhymes I have a gorgeous finger puppet book from Little Scholastic to give away to one lucky blog subscriber. We have lots of these from the series, and I read them to Ruby from when she was very tiny. The cute puppets and familiar nursery rhymes are a great way to read and play with your little one. Suitable from birth to around 2 years.
Lets be clear. I do not work for Scholastic, I am not receiving brown envelope payments from them, nor are they sending me lots of freebies (not that I am averse to bribery and corruption!!). The prize I am giving away is my own (it is new, sealed and unused). No, I am simply a satisfied customer, and as such am very happy to recommend them.
If you are not lucky enough to win this book, then it can be purchased from the Early Learning Centre (£7.99). Alternatively for more info on the books, and others in the series ('Five in the bed','This little piggy' and a great counting puppet book) see http://www5.scholastic.co.uk/zone/book_hand-puppets.htm (£6.99)
It is also well worth checking out their Little Scholastic site for tips and downloads on reading with little ones http://www.scholastic.com/littlescholastic/
So, read on to find out how you can win this great little book. It would make a brilliant gift for a new baby, a first Christmas or birthday present.
