Description

Adults may lament that today's children do not sing in the playground, but the kids know better. Hilarious, energetic, surreal, shocking and nonsensical rhymes and songs are as much in evidence today as they always were. In this book, one of Scotland's best-known storytellers introduces hundreds of such rhymes from all over the country. Some date back hundreds of years; many others have been collected on the author's personal visits to schools. The result is an entertaining anthology which also offers a fascinating insight into the minds of Scottish children over the years.
