My Village: Rhymes from Around the World

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Review

A multicultural collection of nursery rhymes from 22 countries, which introduces readers to the vivid variety of life and tradition around the world.

Michael Rosen’s introduction places nursery rhymes in a brief but useful historical and cultural perspective, emphasising that these rhymes stay with us throughout our lives.

As we read them we appreciate the special nature of nursery rhymes, wherever they originate, with their absurdity, fun, use of wordplay and catchiness.

Printed beside each rhyme is its native language version. The illustrations are designed to attract even the youngest audience, lively, colourful and child-centred.
