Nursery Rhymes From The World Over: Over The Hills And Far Away

Elizabeth Hammil has joyfully collected, curated and got some of the world’s best illustrators to render nursery rhymes from the world over. Canadian Inuit illustrator Andrew Qappick, Native American artist Allison Francisco, Eric Carle have interpreted the poems in their unique way. Over The Hills And Far Away: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes From Around The World has poems from China, Africa, Latin-America, England, Jamaican, Australian, India, New Zealand, Canada and American.

There’s a nursery rhyme that goes:

Abna babna

Lady-Snee

Ocean potion

Sugar and tea

Potato roast

And English toast

Out she goes

Carribean counting-out rhyme

Or a South African rhyme that goes delightfully like this:

Eena, deena, duna, do

Catla, weena,wina, wo

Each peach, pear,plum

Out goes Tom-Thumb

South African counting out rhyme

Or another gem of an English rhyme that goes:

Oranges and lemons

Say the bells of St.Clements

Pancakes and fritters

Say the bells of St.Peters

Two sticks and an apple

Say the bells of Whitechapel

Pokers and tongs

Say the bells of St.Johns

 

Hammil has for instance collated versions of Little Miss. Muffet from around the globe.

The book was supported by African-American storyteller called Ashley Bryan who gave Ms. Hammil a great deal of material and encouragement to go on. Eric Carle generously allowed the use of his illustrations for the ladybird fly away poem. Elizabeth’s own abiding love for children and her passion for helping children read from diverse cultural sources pushed the project onward.

The result is a rich tapestry of rhymes from most corners of the world that children will enjoy. They will also open their eyes to the many-hued usage and vocabulary of the English language by people living in different parts of the world, thus making it their very own.
