Poetry Friday with a review of Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear and other favorite nursery rhymes

Sharing nursery rhyme books with little children can be a lot of fun but usually the books have to be carefully guarded so that little fingers don't tear the pages or color on them. Today's nursery rhyme book is perfect for little children because it has strong coated board pages that cannot be easily torn.

For generations parents have been sharing nursery rhymes with their children. They have sung or said the rhymes so many times that the words often lie in their child’s memory, where they wait until the moment when the child is grown up and wants to share the rhymes with another child.
   Saying or singing the rhymes gives so many moments of shared enjoyment to both grownups and children. These moments can be made even more special when one uses this book because there are pictures to look at.
   Children will love seeing the picture that accompanies the Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe rhyme because it shows a little boy tickling a tiger’s foot, and they will be charmed by the illustration that accompanies the Rain on the Green Grass rhyme, which shows a little owl taking shelter from the rain in a little house that is perched on a tree branch.
   The pages of this book are made out of sturdy boards that can withstand even the most enthusiastic page turning activities, and children will enjoy looking through it on their own.
