Hip hip hooray, it’s Mother Goose Day today! With Mother Goose Media being the very proud mama (and owner) of Kids on the Coast and Kids in the City, it’s a little bit spesh! So, what does it mean?

Mother Goose Day was founded in 1987 by Gloria T. Delamar in tandem with the publication of her book, Mother Goose; From Nursery to Literature (MFarland Pub.).

The day is now celebrated as a day to appreciate old nursery rhymes.

Motto: ‘Either alone or in sharing, read childhood nursery favorites and feel the warmth of Mother Goose's embrace.’

So, why not enjoy our top 10 fav nursery rhymes with your bambinos today?

1. Hickory Dickory Dock

Hickory dickory dock!
The mouse ran up the clock;
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, Dickory, Dock!

2. Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet, Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

3. Round and Round the Garden

Round and round the garden,
Like a teddy bear;
One step, two step,
Tickle you under there!

4. Incey Wincey Spider

Incey Wincey Spider
Climbed up the spout,
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out,
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain,
And Incey Wincey Spider
Climbed up the spout again.

5. Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir;
Three bags full:
One for the master,
And one for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

6. Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

7. The Grand Old Duke of York

Oh the grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men,
He marched them up to the top of the hill
And he marched them down again.
And when they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down,
And when they were only halfway up,
They were neither up nor down.

8. Twinkle, Twinkle

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are,
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky;
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

9. Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

10. If You're Happy and You Know it

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands,
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you're happy and you know it
and you really want to show it,
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands.
