Nursery Rymes ExposedEveryone grew up with nursery rhymes, such as Jack and Jill, or Humpty Dumpty, and many others. The visual imagery created by these stories is graphic, such as three blind mice running away from a farmer’s wife brandishing a knife, while Jack jumped over a flaming candle. But most believe that many of the nursery rhymes came from historical events or situations in British politics, and were invented as a way of spreading gossip about royalty. And while these rumors and stories have no bearing on our lives today, the rhymes they produced have lived on from generation to generation.

By delving deeper than the ditty Nursery Rhymes Exposed shed new light on many of our favourite nursery rhymes. Interesting objects and life size nursery rhyme characters created by the Yamba Museum members including Humpty Dumpty, Little Jack Horner, the Queen of Hearts the Plaque Doctor and Mother Goose and more delighted people of all ages.
