Book Description
This collection of traditional rhymes, riddles and ditties brings together almost three hundred verses known throughout Newfoundland and Labrador by generations of children and adults. Most of the verses contain a place name, personal name, or liquistic structure that identifies them as being of Newfoundland and Labrador origin. The remaining verses have retained the rhythms and wording they had upon their arrival centuries ago from England, Ireland, France and Scotland. A few original verses from the north of the province have been added to round out the selection. Decorative cast cuts, originally used by Long Brothers' hand presses in St. John's, have been used to illustrate the verses. Explanatory notes clarify the historic origins of some of these delightful and memorable nursery rhymes. Several blank pages have been included at the back to allow readers to personalize their copies with their own family verses.
