The Lovereading4Kids comment
A treasure trove of an anthology, this is a brilliant collection of Scots songs and rhymes for children suitable for singing or chanting on all occasions. Many have been gathered from visits to schools across Scotland especially in the 1990s and 2000s but others are much older. Taken from the far flung islands and from the cities, they celebrate many aspects of life in Scotland including family, friendship, the beautiful countryside and the weather.
ABC, My Grannie Caught a Flea Scots Children's Songs and Rhymes by Ewan McVicar
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.
