Join us to explore children's songs & rhymes in the ITMA collection. Let us lead you down a childhood memory lane with selections of sound recordings, videos and books to view and enjoy.
In past times, the soundscape of children's lives were not filled by downloads, sound speakers or tablets but by their own voices, in rhymes to accompany action songs, skipping and ball games, or gentle lullabies to end the night. During Heritage Week, we are delighted to present a curated selection of recordings, videos and printed books featuring children's songs and rhymes.
