Children's folklore is an ancient tradition, one all cultures have adopted, providing localised rhymes, riddles and tales to inspire the social and intellectual development of children. While many rhymes originate in the playground, some of Australia's best-loved authors have written rhymes for children with a peculiarly Australian slant. From C.J. Dennis to May Gibbs and on to Colin Thiele, this latest addition to the 'Little Book' series is a treat for the young and young-at-heart.
