Nursery Rhyme Histories


As I have been searching nursery rhymes out I stumbled on this website that gives the stories/history behind their origin. I thought you might enjoy it. I am thinking of homeschooling and this website may help me come up with a unit study for my little ones in the early years.

There are actually several different stories about the origins of various nursery rhymes. You might find "The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes" to be fascinating on this subject -- I know I did!
