    favourite books and songs for children

    Dear parents, we are designers of a brand new educational website for children. Originally we began this website in our own country but have recently grown to incorporate other countries and languages. Our goal is to create the best online activities for children and we were fortunate to do just that in our homeland. To make this experience unique for your country, we would love to hear more about the fairy tales, songs, and books your children love! What are some stories that all children know? For example, in France, they all read Charles Perrault, in England - Edvadr Lear, and in Russia - Aleksandr Pushkin. What is popular in your country? What fairy tales, songs, nursery rhymes, and verses for small children would it be considered a shame not to know?

    Welcome to Lifesupporters, Irina.

    My personal favourites are Dr. Seuss and just about anything to do with Disney, like the ever familiar "Bambi" for a start.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    Hi Irna
    What a lovely idea .... so many have been lost into the distant past.

    Nursery Rhymes come to mind, like:

    Ring around the rosy,
    Pocket full of posy,
    Ashes! Ashes!
    We all fall down!

    this one is familiar in a lot of countries and each have their own version so it would be good to investigate them and do a comparison as the version I know is :

    Ring a Ring of Rosies
    A pocket full of Posies
    Attishu Attishu
    We all Fall down

    and a cute one is

    Mary, Mary, quite contrary
    How does your garden grow?
    With silver bells and cockleshells
    And pretty maids all in a row.
