Wizzy’s Words is a book of modern nursery rhymes, providing a well-researched resource for parents, carers, family and educational practitioners, to share with children from birth. We all love the nursery rhymes we grew up with, learning to recite them continues to be fun. However, traditional nursery rhymes contain the vocabulary from their times. Nearly 25% of children continue to miss age-appropriate targets, for oral vocabulary, by the end of their reception year. Although many of the rhymes follow traditional tunes, Wizzy’s Words rhymes contain the oral vocabulary, associated with educational and life-long success in our times. The rhymes have been designed to appeal to all children regardless of ability. As children need to hear words before they can say, read and write words, Wizzy’s Words is available in paperback, ebook and audiobook formats. The variety of formats means that Wizzy’s Words can be adapted for parents, for small groups or for whole class sharing/teaching in the pre-school and school setting. Sharing these lovely rhymes with your toddler before starting nursery, pre-school or school will really help your child successfully develop their vocabulary and confidence.
