Humpty Who?

A Crash Course in 80 Nursery Rhymes

By Jennifer Griffin

Once Upon a Time, Every Parent Knew...

Little Jack Horner - Wee Willie Winkie - The Queen of Hearts - Georgie Porgie - Mary, with the lamb, and Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary - Old King Cole - Alice the Camel - Little Miss Muffet - Not to mention the intricate finger ballet called "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and the game of finding Thumbkin.

Now, for every mom and dad who want to give their child the simple pleasures of nursery rhymes but can't remember what happens past the first line, help is here. Humpty Who? is a crash course in Mother Goose (and more), featuring 80 classic poems, songs, lullabies, rounds, and riddles.

Plus, for curious kids and grown-ups, even more fun stuff: exactly what a "tuffet" is, how to make "pease porridge," and the backstory of "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep," baby's first protest song.

The accompanying CD, featuring the rocking "Hell's Kitchen Moms and Babes Ensemble," is great to play for baby, and a fun way for parents to learn the music that goes along with many of the rhymes.
