Little Bo Peep Nursery Rhyme

Nursery rhymes from Mother Goose are filled with tons of historical references. I enjoy the history and the illustrators. I have been reading about the importance of rhymes when learning to read. Apparently parents are not reading the old nursery rhymes to their children like they use to and educators feel this may impact their reading development. I made a card for you to download, print and include with that next book you buy for a young one or just cut and make some bookmarks and bookplates. The front of the card is a bookplate that can be cut-out and glued in the book and the back is a bookmark that can be cut-out and used. The illustration is by Clara Burd from the 1918 edition of "Mother Goose and Her Goslings". Please enjoy these for personal and educational use. If you have a favorite nursery rhyme let me know!

You're so right about the nursery rhymes. My daughter is 5 and I haven't read her any.
