ABC Wednesday N for Nursery Rhymes







Posted by Picasa


NURSERY rhymes are often used to teach children(and adults) the English language! At least I did! And they are so delightful, that we always remember them! Try to find out which NURSERY rhymes are represented by these collages.
BTW the girl baking the cake is my granddaughter!

Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been? I've been to London to look at the Queen.

I love nursery rhymes and think I get most of these -- the last has me stumped though

Sylvia K said...

First of all, your granddaughter is beautiful! I can just imagine the joy she brings to you! And, yes, my first thought was the "pussy cat, pussy, where have you been" rhyme, too. Fun post and a great N word!

Enjoy your day!

What a great idea for today! I'm wondering if one of the photos is "London Bridge is falling down."

photowannabe said...

Very clever. I think I got them all. Pussy cat,
hey diddle diddle, london bridge is falling down and little miss muffet.
Great post.

Babooshka said...

As always something to test the grey matter and fun too. Unique way of using the letter.

Q said...

I was able to figure most of them out...a little rusty on my Nursery
Rhymes...your Granddaughter is very pretty...
Creative N!

I love those old nursery rhymes - and tracing some of them back to their source can sometimes be quite a shock.

Mara said...

I couldn't place the first one, the second one would have something to do with the cow jumping over the moon, the third with London Bridge that's falling down and the fourth one is about Miss Muffet and the spider scaring her away.
I think!

Great N

Pam said...

You really got me to thinking of all the nursery rhymes they could be, it sure was great fun. Your granddaughter is adorable, Wil

A fun quiz and a darling granddaughter!

Hildred and Charles said...

Dear Reader, - you never fail to entertain, - great post. Nice picture of the Queen, no wonder pussy looks so pleased with herself, having just made the trip to London and back.

Pacey said...

Hahahahah....pretty refreshing my friend. Is that the Queen Beatrix? Am not sure anymore coz I only saw her once at Albertcuyp markt.

swapna said...

This post really triggered me to recollect few of the good old nursery rhymes...

Your granddaughter is real cute, awesome cake too.

Roger Owen Green said...

I got them, but then I have a five-year-old daughter!

Rita said...

Very fun and clever post, but how did you hook the photos together? I never can do things like that!!!
Would like to know your secret
Hugs

Very nice post, Wil. I enjoyed it.

Barbara Martin said...

I always liked the hey diddle diddle, the cow jumped over the moon, poem. This was fun, Wil.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

I have worked here as a reliever in early childhood centres and had to learn them all. Was great fun

Anya said...

Die foto's van gaudi komen eraan

Ik heb alleen teveel foto's en ik kan geen keus maken :(

Crafty Green Poet said...

what a lovely cat, there's something amusing about her photo being next to the Queens' even though as Vicki commented there's a nursery rhyme to connect them...

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

Thanks for all your wishes, Wil.

Je connais et reconnais"london bridge is fallind down"!

"Twinkle, twinkle, little star"me rappelle Alice in wonderland !(est-ce l'habitude le le chanter sur un air de Mozart? )

Beaucoup de romans d'Agatha Christie se basent sur des Nursery Rhymes: c'est très excitant !

Miss_Yves said...

Charmante fillette !

Middle Ditch said...

Incy wincy spider and the cow jumped over the moon were the ones I identified.

You have a lovely daughter
