Hickory Dickory What?!

Ever wondered what a 'Hickory Dickory was? Or why Mary was quite so contrary?

Each month I will bring you the stories behind some of our best-loved and least understood British nursery rhymes, with downloads and videos for you to enjoy.

If you have a particular favourite rhyme and would like to share it with us, or would like to know the signs for it - get in touch: jo@littlehurrahs.co.uk

Have fun!

Rhyme Of The Month

Sign up for our newsletter to get a new, FREE printable 'Rhyme Time' download every two weeks. Each 'Rhyme Time' sheet has the lyrics and the story behind a well-known childrens' rhyme for you to enjoy and share with your little ones at home.


Discover the weird and wonderful history of these stories, some of which date back to Ancient Egypt! Most nursery rhymes have a political history, and some of them are quite gory - don't let that put you off sharing them. 


To our children, they are just a fun, silly rhyme that they enjoy sharing with you, because whether you are Beyoncé or tone-deaf, what children love to hear most is the sound of your voice.

Join other Little Hurrahs families around the UK for a monthly, live catch-up. 

Our chats are (mostly) a child-free zone, giving you the chance to vent, to ask questions, to share stories, and pick up tips and ideas, with a friendly, supportive group of people who just get it.  Put your PJs on, grab a cup of something nice, and let's cross our fingers for no interruptions!

Each month we will spend up to an hour exploring a topic or theme pulled from the two most recent nursery rhymes. Baby(/toddler) brain moments will be limited as the songs and rhymes will help you put tips into place as part of your everyday routine.

Live Chat: First Monday of the Month @ 7.30pm 

A recording will be available for up to 4 weeks after each chat.
