Return to list of categories Nursery Rhyme

A Nursery Rhyme is a traditional song for children, usually handed down by oral tradition from generation to generation. The tunes are usually very simple, and often very catchy, so adults will remember them all their lives. Sometimes the words are silly nonsense, occasionally they may incorporate an element of political satire from centuries ago, and frequently they involve fantasy, which appeals to young children.
