Oranges and Lemons by Karen Dolby, £9.99,

WE can all remember singing nursery rhymes when we were young. But do we know what lies behind them?

This fascinating book is beautifully presented, informative and absorbing as the author brings back fond memories with a look at popular rhymes such as classics “Ride A Cock Horse to Banbury Cross” and “Little Jack Horner.”

There are lots of fascinating facts, superstitions, origins and meanings to discover behind each rhyme.
