Many of us can probably recite, "Pop! Goes The Weasel" by heart. Passed down across the centuries, the anachronisms in the lyrics sound like playful nonsense words. In truth, this and other rhymes were practical lessons for children, trying to survive amid death, plague, crime and poverty.
This won't appeal to those of us without children, but you've gotta admit the animation of this Nursery Rhymes with StoryTime app is absolutely stunning. Provided the child has an iPad, iPhone 4 or 3GS, you can read aloud to them from anywhere there's Wi-Fi available.
