Introduce children to classic nursery rhymes with the help of Curious George!

Complete with a CD of five classic nursery rhymes (featuring the songs, the music only and a cappella versions), children will take delight in both music and books with the help of Curious George! Included in the book are the lyrics for the five nursery rhymes featured - Humpty Dumpty, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Round the Mulberry Bush and Pat a Cake. Also included (within the illustrations) are the musical scales that show the notes for each song (an interesting approach to introduce the idea of reading music)!

This is a great book infants and toddlers, as it is simple, can be used as a whole or with each nursery rhyme individually. Parents will find it easy to help their child learn the words to the nursery rhymes, as the lyrics for each rhyme make up the text of the story. This would make for a wonderful share at bedtime story-time!
