3.0 out of 5 stars Missing Some Essentials, 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Orchard Book of Nursery Rhymes (Books for Giving) (Hardcover)
I'm giving this book three stars as it has lovely illustrations in the classic Victorian style, but it lacks many of the old nursery rhymes that were popular when I was younger. Off the top of my head 'Oranges and Lemons' isn't in there - in fact so many I grew up with aren't in there, so I feel a bit short-changed if I'm being honest. I have a rubbish memory for these things, so I wanted a book which had all the classics, so I could teach them to my son. Sadly, lots of the ones I half-remembered and couldn't recall all the words to are not included, so it wasn't much help in brushing up on my nursery rhyme repertoire.

Have also knocked off a star because some of the ones that are included are quite long, repetitive and irritating.

Overall, it's a nice book, but not comprehensive enough by far.
