Needles and Ribbons and Packets of Pins

Reading books with your child

Singing a nursery rhyme is a great way to bond with your little one. Have a go at the tune below together:

Needles and ribbons and packets of pins,

Prints and chintz and odd bod-a-kins--

They'd never mind whether

You laid them together

Or one from the other in packets and tins.

But packets of pins and ribbons and needles,

And odd bod-a-kins, and chintz and prints,

Being birds of a feather

Would huddle together

Like minnows on billows or pennies in mints.
