A nostalgic and entertaining look back through childhood nursery rhymes and stories, explanations of their origins and meanings, and the controversies surrounding them

Plugging into the memories and knowledge of our earliest years, this collection gathers the most well-known and best-loved nursery rhymes, many of which we always seem to have known, yet struggle to remember clearly, along with some that may be less familiar. It examines the history of the rhymes, how they have evolved through the centuries, and the controversies surrounding their origins. Looking at classic favorites such as "Humpty Dumpty," "Hickory Dickory Dock," and "Georgie Porgie" will put readers back in touch with a time lost in hazy nostalgia, just on the edge of memory.
