Thread Name: nursery rhymes-Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
Subject: RE: Did You Teach 'Em To Your Kids?
OH, the Childcraft series! There were six of us, the books were barely together when I left home. I wanted them so for my own girls, but when they were young, I was mighty poor and even the used bookstore's offering was too high.

I read to them each night. We had and still have a big book of nursery rhymes. We also read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Honey Bunch and even the Bobbsey Twins. My children too, grew into punk rockers whose greatest dream is to go on Van's Warped Tour.

I did start singing to them early on - sitting in the darkened bedroom, strumming my baritone uke and remembering folk and playparty songs.

"Teach your children well..."
