About This Book
ALL the most popular Nursery Rhymes are here collected together in one book, and the traditional or best known tunes have been chosen and harmonised in a maimer easily playable and within the voice compass of the little singers. A great many of the tunes make excellent dance music, while many of the songs can also be performed in costume with the greatest effect. The principal object of this book, however, is to provide a collection—not from an academical point of view, but one which contains nothing but the really best known rhymes and songs. It is hoped they will help to revive the beautiful old practice of mothers singing with their children, thereby inculcating at an early age the sense of music, and instilling a love for the beautiful old British Folk-Songs.
