|Finding my inner child again with the Nonsense Show|
Let me explain before my blog post turns into a part of the Nonsense show too............
Nonsense lies at the heart of many beloved nursery rhymes..... the cow jumped over the moon and the dish ran away with the spoon - to me this makes perfect sense, I've grown up with this story and at first giggled at it, thought it funny and strange and then.... well just accepted the surreal and the 'poppycock' of the world of rhymes.
|"This is not a ball" - Max aged 4|
|Reading The Nonsense Show Book|
He couldn't get his head round the two headed snake with no tail, but fully accepted a fish in the a cage and a bird in the water.
I can't say it was a book I enjoyed reading, but it was very much a book I enjoyed with Max. Does that sounds nonsense? Watching him study the pages, discuss why the lion was upside (when in fact the book was!) and reading back words such as absurd are what make the memories. So thank you Eric Carle, the wonderful creator of the Very Hungry Caterpillar, this is one book that will very much stick in my head.... unless I swap my head with a horse's!
The book is currently retailing at £12 hard back and if nothing else is full of baloney and fun memories.
