About This Quiz

Some nursery rhymes seem to be written just for you. Take Old King Cole who was a merry old soul. Are you like him? Ready to call for your pipe, your bowl and your fiddlers three? Absolutely, if we'll find you at concerts, enjoying a fine wine (the bowl was for wine), and using your pipe to smoke tobacco... or whatever else you choose. 

But maybe the nursery rhyme of Old McDonald's Farm is the tune that underscores your life. With a "cluck, cluck" here and a "moo, moo" there. If you have kids, pets, errands to run, and a job to boot, you know you don't have to run a farm to feel overwhelmed!

Why do we even have nursery rhymes? Actually, they are important for young children in developing an ear for our language. Both rhyme and rhythm help kids hear the sounds and syllables in words. Which in turn, helps kids learn to read. You can see how powerful and potent these nursery rhymes are - most people can still recite them as adults! So whether you want to "sing a song of sixpence" or "pick a peck of pickled peppers," you're sure to find the nursery rhyme that speaks to you and your life by taking this quiz today.
