It’s kind of “creepy” in that it deals with the concept of cremation, but the rhymes are awesome and the illustrations are wonderful.

I, too, have been scouring the world for books I loved as a child. I wonder if you can help me put a name to one I can’t remember: it was an illustrated songbook that went with a recording we had in the 1970s. It had lots of the typical nursery rhymes including: Polly Put the Kettle On (the book had a picture of two little girls having tea), Little Tom Tucker (picture of a boy singing for bread under a window), London Bridge (picture of the bridge burning/in flames), Dance to Your Daddy, Dame Get up and make your pies, Old King Cole (picture of the birds coming out the pie), Little Jack Horner (picture of him pulling out a plumb on his thumb). This book also had Ride a cock horse to banbury cross and there was a great picture of the woman with rings on her fingers and bells on her toes (and I can hear the woman’s voice singing the song in my head!).

I’ve been meaning to buy one for my kids – since the original from my childhood doesn’t seem to have survived (I hate that!)
