Preschool | My Book of Nursery Rhymes

August 23, 2019

This is partnership post with In The Book

This September Piglet is making the move from her day nursery setting to preschool within the local school. Whilst this has been delayed (by nine months) due to the school’s policies, she is finally starting her educational journey. To mark this milestone in her life we have been sent a personalised copy of the My Book of Nursery Rhymes for her to read, enjoy and treasure throughout preschool and beyond.

My Book of Nursery Rhymes

Nursery rhymes, nursery rhymes
Forever been told
Enjoyed as a child
Remembered when old
Inside these pages
Rhymes to go round
To continue tradition
Of a familiar sound

Designed & illustrated by Misha Mistry

Did you know? Rhyming teaches children how language works and singing along to a tune helps the receptors in a child’s brain grasp the basics of language from a young age.

Also, repetition solidifies those connections between words and songs, but really, it’s just so much fun to see our children delighted by fun rhymes!

Comprising of 23 different nursery rhymes the keepsake book is something that can be enjoyed throughout the day or utilised at bedtime reciting a couple of favourite nursery rhymes.


When you come to order a copy of My Book of Nursery Rhymes you are able to personalise the book. Adding the recipient’s name as well a special message or dedication. As Piglet is just about start preschool I opted for a little note about her starting her educational journey.

Alongside the name personalisation and dedication/message, In The Book have added in a little extra challenge for the recipient. A chance to see how good their observational skills are as their name is hidden within the beautiful illustrations throughout the book. Adding that extra level of interaction with the book, that has already become a highlight for Piglet searching for her name as we work out way through the different nursery rhymes.

Where can I buy My Book of Nursery Rhymes?

The My Book of Nursery Rhymes is available from In The Book, in a choice of formats (A4 softback, A4 hardback, and the classic hardback in green or white hardcover with foil lettering). Each edition can be personalised to make it a wonderful keepsake no matter what the occasion.
