4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Bright and cheery, well made CD. 22 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
What more is there to say? The songs are bursting with energy, the accompaniment is good (real musical instruments, not horrible electronic music), the songs are well and clearly sung... A great buy!
The only thing I regret is that the lyrics have not been printed out. OK, so they are classics, but it would still be good to have the words to sing along to. As I want to do printouts for my ESL classes, I've had to find the lyrics myself and check they matched the CD version, which has been a drag. For all those interested in the original lyrics and especially the (sometimes gory) origins of our beloved nursery rhymes, I strongly recommend you check out the following website: [...]

This is a truly excellent CD of nursery rhymes for children. The singers have great voices and the musical backing for each song is varied and well thought-through. Our 2-year-old loves every minute of it, and we find we can tolerate hearing it over and over again without the sort of pain you get with most song compilations for children. There are 40 songs so it lasts a long time, making it great value for money. We strongly recommend it - especially to anyone making long car trips with children!

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and varied 4 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
I am extremely picky about music CDs and DVDs for children, perhaps as I am a musician myself, but we've been listening to this CD for over a year and have not got sick of it. The instrumentation is varied, as are the pacing and the styles of the songs. The sound quality is nice and natural and the performances spirited and fun. I would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money 15 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
Simply put, this CD is enjoyable for your child, bearable with repetition for the parents, and composed professionally. Accents are British sounding, and the recording is good enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD! 16 Mar 2004
By Mr_Hat
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this CD for my 2 year old daughter, and it hasn't been out of the CD player since it arrived.
All the favourite kiddies nursery rhymes are here, all sung very well..and with proper English accents rather than American!
Unfortunatly Amazon do not contain a track listing, but just do a google search on B0000256JC as it is listed on plenty of websites :-)
Buy this title with confidence. You, or rather your Children, will not regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 18 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
It is indeed a brilliant CD. I was a bit wary in case the songs got annoying but I loved it more than my son. It was amazing how all the words came flooding back from when I was little. I was singing along in no time. Well worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Traditional Rendition 11 Jan 2000
Format:Audio CD
I wanted a collection of nursery rhymes in traditional rendition preferably on CD (I hate tapes of any sort)for my kids whom I raise as bilinguals (Russian and British English). I spent a lot of time sorting through everything that is listed in this category online (mainly trying to avoid American English renditions) and ordering a few items here and there, but remained unsatisfied until I hit pay dirt with this title. It is an excellent traditional rendition: the vocals are fine (mostly male, with a sprinkling of female and children's leads, presenting a nice assortment of voices), the sound mix is very good. The only drawback I can list is the absence of a booklet with lyrics, which would have made it easier to sing along.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time! 7 July 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the 4th Cd I've bought for baby - and about time I got one this appropriate. Fantastically normal - not folky, operatic or weirdly modern - sung by normal voices with a bit of character for each song. Listened to it loads already and still not annoyed in the slightest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great
Really simple well known rhymes that all early years children will enjoy. Great on the listening table with headphones as well as to use with instruments during singing sessions.

My baby likes listening to music but this one does nothing for him. The songs are very dull and they really start to get on your nerves after a very short while. Read more
