The original - scare mongering rhymes -

Obviously this will depend what you want in your rhyme book. For us, it was supposed to be a first birthday present for our daughter who loves music. We were completely sold by the sheet music for each rhyme in the back and gorgeous illustrations. We did not read them carefully enough until we got home. Baa baa black sheep - the little boy is crying in the lane. That's one of the tamer original versions. Jill gets scolded for letting Jack fall down the hill. There's one about babes dying in a wood. All very macabre really. If you're looking for original lyrics you're in luck. If you're after something to sing along with your toddler - look elsewhere. Shame really because it is just beautiful to look at.
