Wind Your Bobbin Up: First Nursery Rhymes

Let's Play Music : Wind Your Bobbin Up - First Nursery Rhymes

Wind Your Bobbin Up is an old nursery rhyme which dates from the mills in the north of England during the 1890’s. It has a simple melody and repetitive words and actions so little ones are able to join in even before they can sing the words. Actions in songs are often an excellent way to build comprehension and vocabulary and toddlers are always so eager to demonstrate that they know what to do!
