QUIZ BLISS | Quiz Facts

A nursery rhyme is a traditional poem or song for children in Britain and many other countries, but usage of the term only dates from the late 18th/early 19th century. The oldest children's songs of which we have records are lullabies, intended to help a child sleep. Lullabies can be found in every human culture. From the later Middle Ages there are records of short children's rhyming songs, often as marginalia. From the mid-16th century they begin to be recorded in English plays. "Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man" is one of the oldest surviving English nursery rhymes. In the early 19th century printed collections of rhymes began to spread to other countries. Many nursery rhymes have been argued to have hidden meanings and origins. Many of the ideas about the links between rhymes and historical persons, or events, can be traced back to Katherine Elwes's book The Real Personages of Mother Goose (1930), in which she linked famous nursery-rhyme characters with real people, on little or no evidence. It has been argued that nursery rhymes set to music aid in a child's development. Research also supports the assertion that music and rhyme increase a child's ability in spatial reasoning, which aid mathematics skills. Recognize classic nursery rhymes like "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep", "A-Tisket, A-Tasket", "Pease Porridge Hot", and more to see if you have what it takes to be a nursery rhyme mastermind.
