Since Rowan was very little he’s always loved nursery rhymes being sung to him, more recently he’s able to join in with them by filling in the words and also doing the actions to the songs, it’s very cute to watch. We were delighted when the company Nursery Rhymes 123 got in contact with us to review their brand new Classic Nursery Rhymes album.
There are 12 children’s nursery rhymes featured on the album including:
- Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
- Mary Had a Little Lamb
- Five Little Speckled Frogs
- If You’re Happy and You Know It
- Jack and Jill
- She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain
- Five Little Monkeys
- Three Blind Mice
- London Bridge is Falling Down
- Pat a Cake Pat a Cake
- Little Miss Muffet
- Pop! Goes The Weasel
There are also an extra 12 tracks (13-24) which are instrumental versions of the same songs in order, in case you prefer to sing without the singer on the tracks or want something a little quieter in the background say for parties or playgroups.
The songs are sung by UK based singer-songwriter Martha Bean and she has a really lovely voice, which is a huge benefit when your little one makes you play the album over and over again. Martha is also a musician who plays a wide range of different instruments on the album, including the piano, double bass, mandolin, cello, banjo, recorder and many many more. It’s lovely to hear real instruments being played.
We have really enjoyed listening to this with Rowan, it’s a great and easy listening album to have on in the car to keep your little one entertained and to have a family sing a long. Rowan’s favourite track is Three Blind Mice, which he likes us to sing over and over again. We also like playing it at home and teaching Rowan the different actions to the songs. The songs are great for teaching counting and body parts.
Classic Nursery Rhymes by Nursery Rhymes 123 is available to download and purchase on iTunes for £7.99, or it can be streamed on Spotify. The album is also available on all other major download and streaming sites including Amazon Mp3, Google Play and Apple Music.
