This collection of patriotic nursery rhymes, first published in 1918, was designed to instruct British children about wartime conditions: the necessity of rationing, the bravery of wounded soldiers, and the villainy of the Kaiser. Republished for the first time since 1918 to commemorate the outbreak of World War I, Wartime Nursery Rhymes offers unique insights into a little-known aspect of the war: the experience of children on the home front. This book will make a perfect gift for children of all ages and will also be welcomed by World War I enthusiasts as well as collectors of children’s books.
