Nursery Rhymes by The Speks

A couple of weeks ago, a dear friend of mine brought me a copy of 'Nursery Rhymes' by The Speks. This is a book filled with many traditional nursery rhymes for young children (such as 'Sing A Song Of Sixpence' and 'Humpty Dumpty', etc.) brightly illustrated and includes a CD to sing along with. But, this is no ordinary nursery rhyme CD/book. Rather than the expected, rather plummy voice warbling along to old-fashioned music, The Speks (a clever group based in county Clare) have set these rhymes to Irish music.... and the children just love it! Unique and thoroughly wonderful, I highly recommend it! You can check it out on their website, or pick up a copy at a great bookshop near you.
