Nursery rhymes have always been an essential part of toddlerhood.  I can well remember reprimanding my mum when she tried to skip a page in our treasured Ladybird Books of Nursery Rhymes at bedtime!  Of course, reading together is never going to be beaten, but watching these fun interactive nursery rhyme videos with a carer, and sometimes on your own, is great fun too.  Little ones will love the hosts and characters who quickly become beloved friends, and parents will love the educational value which will helps boost children's literacy at this crucial early stage.  Click through to subscribe to the ChuChu TV YouTube channel and follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
