Nursery Rhymes Book Guest Post



The first documented mention of nursery rhymes can be found in plays around the 17th to 18th century. Even before this, most human culture had created their own lyrical forms of rhymes versed through songs, to stimulate the mind and nurture one’s offspring.

Still loved today and greatly revered, nursery rhymes are a light-hearted link to the past, where nostalgia of childhood innocence can be rekindled with every passing rhyme. Some editions, like the personalised nursery rhyme book have been rejuvenated with a personalised twist, giving children a personal keepsake of their youth.

The earliest nursery rhymes we know of date back to the 14th century, during the Medieval era. The topic of taxes, religious persecution, plagues and disease were the mindless tunes churned out, as the lyrics mostly reflected one’s environment and society.

Though these topics are not the wholesome, fanciful rhymes that nursery rhymes of today present, the songs still perpetuate, and are passed down from parents to children, sung throughout schools and written in storybooks. Many songs also have much darker origins. 

The origins of popular rhymes - like stories from The Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Andersen - are rooted in ‘folklore’. In short, the term sufficiently describes the nature of nursery rhymes and fairy tales based upon “stories of a community” that are passed between generations by word of mouth.





The most notable and popular rhymes still sung today emerged around the 17th and 18th century. This is known as the ‘golden era’ of rhymes, with the first English collections, Tommy Thumb's Song Book and a sequel, Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book, published before 1744. 

It was Thomas Carnan, the stepson of John Newberry - the publisher of the collections - who first used the term “Mother Goose” for nursery rhymes. The terms are often interchangeable, both with the same goal of comforting and lulling children, hence the term “lullaby”. 

However, there has always been a concern over the subject matter of nursery rhymes since their emergence. Many nursery rhymes gained notoriety predominantly as a form of societal resistance and mockery of the higher classes by caricaturing royalty, politicians and corruption. 



In these Medieval times, if the poor and often victims of said tyranny spoke out against corrupt high officials, the offence was punishable by death and so, a watered down form of ridicule to gently expose injustices presented itself as children’s entertainment: nursery rhymes, hence the dark subject matter of many popular rhymes.

In opposition to the dark undertones of children’s rhymes, the British Society for Nursery Rhyme Reform was founded in the Victorian period. They condemned the some of the most popular nursery rhymes like Humpty Dumpty and Lucy Locket, and vowed to clean up the cannon. 

Despite the darker origins behind nursery rhymes, the proven evolutionary benefits are evident. Nursery rhymes are essential to aid a child’s brain development, their basic skills in infancy and help nurture the parent-child bond. These are among the huge advantages of reading and repeating beloved nursery rhymes.

Get Phantom by Laura DeLuca #Free on Amazon

 Phantom, Dark Musicals Book 1 is currently FREE on Amazon for a limited time. See how Rebecca and Justyn's story began, and catch up on the whole series before the new book hits virtual shelves.


The "Phantom" was a musical phenomenon that Rebecca had always found enchanting. She had no idea that her life was about to mirror the play that was her obsession. When her high school drama club chooses "Phantom" as their annual production, Rebecca finds herself in the middle of an unlikely love triangle and the target of a sadistic stalker who uses the lines from the play as their calling card. Rebecca lands the lead role of Christine, the opera diva, and like her character, she is torn between her two co-stars-Tom the surfer and basketball star who plays the lovable hero, and Justyn, the strangely appealing Goth who is more than realistic in the role of the tortured artist. Almost immediately after casting, strange things start to happen both on and off the stage. Curtains fall. Mirrors are shattered. People are hurt in true phantom style. They all seem like accidents until Rebecca receives notes and phone calls that hint at something more sinister. Is Justyn bringing to life the twisted character of the phantom? Or in real life are the roles of the hero and the villain reversed? Rebecca doesn't know who to trust, but she knows she's running out of time as she gets closer and closer to opening night. Only when the mask is stripped away, will the twenty-first century phantom finally be revealed.

Magic & Wonder Collide, as Enchanting Books Teach Children British Etiquette



As an International Etiquette Trainer, Taryn Jahme has taught British etiquette to clients from all walks of life. However, children have a special place in her heart – not only for the unique challenges they present, but the creative and uplifting ways in which Taryn can impart her wisdom.


The ‘Henry and Kathleen’ series of children’s books is one of Taryn’s proudest resources – a series of storybooks that teach children British etiquette while engrossing them in a world where literally anything can happen!



Synopses:

‘A Magical London Adventure’ - Siblings Henry and Kathleen are lively and imaginative, but also a little mischievous. The Magical London Adventure by Taryn Jahme tells the tale of how, following a spot of trouble due to poor table manners, the children write a story of apology. This story within a story tells of an exciting magical adventure in which Jasper, a friendly dragon, explores London. The story culminates with a grand feast at Buckingham Palace where the children succeed in demonstrating their refined manners.



‘High Tea Through the Tunnels of London’ - Henry and Kathleen are invited by their Aunty Kerry and Granny Fay to sample High Tea at the Ritz Hotel. While there, they get trapped in a lift—from which they are rescued by Detective Fox, one of the animals the children watch play at the bottom of their garden. Detective Fox enlists the help of his friends Lady Badger, Sir Rabbit, Mrs Mole and Mr Hedgehog to whisk Henry and Kathleen on an adventure through the tunnels deep below London.



‘Little London Pirates’ - Henry and Kathleen enjoy playing in one of London’s most prestigious play-grounds at Kensington Garden’s. Magic turns the playground’s fabulous and famous pirate ship in to a real ship, setting sail upon the River Thames on a great and exciting adventure! Embarking upon a twisting and epic journey, encountering Pirates and mermaids and sea monsters., Henry and Kathleen are in for a wild time. Famous ships which are ‘dotted’ around London join the battle on the River Thames to save the children from the pirates. Will the children manage to get away?



‘Royal Air Force Day’ - Henry and Kathleen are extremely excited to go and see the ‘Red Arrows’ flying at ‘Royal Air Force Day’. Dad is flying a red arrow which has the Queen of England watching in awe. Whilst Dad is flying, Henry and Kathleen are on an epic and thrilling journey in a world famous ‘London black taxi’ which magically grows wings! Flying through the skies, Henry and Kathleen are in a race with the Red Arrows! With the crowds cheering excitedly, amazed that a London black taxi is flying through the air at such ‘high speed’, will Dad realise who it is?



‘The Raven Tea Party at the Tower of London’ - Henry and Kathleen are having a fun picnic in beautiful Richmond Park. They adventure further away from their picnic spot arriving at a ginormous old oak tree. Little do Henry and Kathleen realise that the animals that live in the branches are truly magical creatures. After meeting the magical animals for tea, the children fly on the backs of the ‘Great Wise Owls’, soaring high towards the Tower of London. A truly marvellous party hosted by the Tower’s world famous ravens takes place with all the Tower of London’s historical animals, dancing and singing. With only a limited amount of time to get back to their picnic spot, Henry and Kathleen are against time to find hidden clues throughout the Tower of London’s narrow passages, dodging laser beams, hidden tiny rooms and with many twists and turns. Henry and Kathleen’s aim is to find the Crown Jewels before it’s too late! Getting chased out of the Tower by the Queen’s medieval metal armoured Guards and setting off alarm bells, Henry and Kathleen finally get saved!

“I wanted to create a fun-based learning experience that would embed important etiquette lessons in stories that young children actually want to read,” explains the author. “Each story puts the fun and adventure first, and then intelligently weaves wisdom around the experiences, characters and challenges that the child, Henry and Kathleen encounter.”

Continuing, “Social skills are of course the bedrock of anyone’s success in life, and etiquette is one piece of the puzzle that is often missing when we bring up children either personally or professionally. These books plug that gap in a way that will have youngsters curious to continue the enchantment!”

The entire ‘Henry and Kathleen’ series is available now, from the author’s official website.

Challenging Me (Lightworker Series Book 7) by Jamie White


It was supposed to be an easy job. Courtney and Santiago Martinez are charged with keeping watch over a young woman who’s close to inheriting the special gifts of their people, a task meant to avoid the betrayals that cost her and their people so much. The sudden disappearance of their charge complicates things, and leaves Courtney with a sense of guilt and responsibility she can’t shake at a time when she’s already weakened by what she fears is a new attack on her personally.

Things get worse as one by one, people disappear under seemingly mundane circumstances that lead them to believe their enemies have a new plan to destroy them. Will Courtney manage to fight through this latest setback to find the missing people, or will their people finally face defeat?


My Thoughts

In the seventh book in the Lightworker series, Courtney and are husband are watching out for the next generation of Ligthtworkers who are waiting for their powers to develop. The problem is, the bad guys want them, too. If they capture the teens, they could twist their minds, teaching them to use their powers for evil. When one of their charges goes missing, Courtney hopes to grow her abilities in order to find her. She also fears that she and her sister are under attack, so the two of them join forces to combat the evil forces trying to take them down.

This has been one of my favorite paranormal series in a long time. It's a really unique take on Lighworkers and the supernatural elements are enthralling. The interaction between the characters is great and I've enjoyed the progression of Courtney's personality as she grew from a teenager to a woman with a husband and adult responsibilities.  This is the most recent edition of the Lightworker series, and now that I'm all caught up, I will have to wait impatiently for the author to release the next one.
