A first of its kind — here's a collection of classic Cantonese nursery rhymes like 「大笨象揸枝槍」, 「河邊有隻羊」,「何家公雞何家猜」,「有隻雀仔跌落水」that are likely familiar to those who grew up in Hong Kong.
This book provides a written record of more than 50 Cantonese nursery rhymes that were typically only passed down verbally through the generations. Every rhyme includes inline jyutping (extremely rare!) and an accompanying QR code to access the audio file that performs the rhyme.
Not only will this book provide many of you a walk down memory lane, it is also surprisingly informative. Each rhyme includes historical tidbits of the daily life during when these rhymes were sang, what often inspired the rhymes themselves, and how games are played with rhyme.
