Round and Round the Garden: A First Book of Nursery Rhymes

By Shirley Hughes
Illustrated by Shirley Hughes

A first book of nursery rhymes for everyday moments in a child’s life.

This classic collection features 60 beautifully illustrated nursery rhymes from Shirley’s childhood to inspire a new generation to discover their own favourite rhymes – and sing them wherever they go. Parents and children can enjoy these rhymes all through the day: from walking to the park on a cold and frosty morning with “Here we go round the mulberry bush”, splashing about in a tub singing “Rub-a-dub-dub” or going to bed with “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. This collection is the perfect addition to any child's bookshelf.

  • A definitive collection of nursery rhymes, illustrated by the award-winning Shirley Hughes.
  • "One of the greatest writers and illustrators for pre-schoolers." The Times
  • "Shirley Hughes is a national treasure." Philip Pullman
