Here are few of our favorite poems. These nursery rhymes are simple, fun and enchanting!
Jack, be nimble,
Jack, be quick
Jack, jump over the candle stick
One two buckle my shoe
Three, four, knock at the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, a big fat hen!
Fishy, fishy in the brook
Daddy caught it with a hook
Mommy fried it in the pan
And (your child’s name) ate it like a man!
Little Boy Blue
Little Boy Blue come blow your horn,
The sheep’s in the meadow the cow’s in the corn.
But where’s the boy who looks after the sheep?
He’s under a haystack fast asleep.
Will you wake him? No, not I – for if I do, he’s sure to cry.”
Reading and reciting poems are fun to do with our toddlers! 🙂
