  • Hey Diddle Diddle

    By Pat-a-Cake, Richard Merritt
    Authors:
    Pat-a-Cake
    Illustrated by:
    Richard Merritt
    Hey Diddle Diddle combines lively pictures with a classic rhyme that's easy for parents and carers to recognise and recite. Young children will adore searching the page for flaps to open while singing along as they recognise all the friendly characters in this timeless rhyme. The spotting game at the end is a great incentive to go through the pages once again until each tiny thing is found! Nursery Rhymes are important stepping stones to language development. The rhymes usually tell a story, too, with a beginning, a middle and an end. This teaches children that events happen in sequence, and they begin to follow along. Nursery rhymes are also full of repetition making them easy to remember, and often become some of a child's first sentences. Also available: The Wheels on the Bus, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Old Macdonald had a Farm
