The Oxford Nursery Rhyme Book Summary

The Oxford Nursery Rhyme Book by Iona Opie

The Oxford Nursery Rhyme Book contains 800 nursery rhymes and ditties which are the heritage of our oral tradition. All the well-known rhymes are included as well as many rare ones. Special sections are devoted to lullabies and dandling rhymes, toe rhymes, catches, charms, traditional street cries, riddle verses, nursery maxims, and humorous ballads. The text is further enlivened by 600 illustrations, many of them eighteenth- and nineteenth-century woodcuts and engravings.

The Oxford Nursery Rhyme Book Reviews

It must be the best collection of nursery rhymes ever * Observer *
the sort of book that easily becomes part of life itself, to be recalled when the history books of our time lie dusty and forgotten * Country Life *
