Songs and Rhymes from Childhood

27th September 2007

Doh ray meEwan McVicar has written the first comprehensive book regarding the lore, songs and rhymes of Scottish children, collected form the street and playground during the last 150 years. People are sure to remember many songs and other material collected here, and a good deal is in Scots. Mr McVicar is himself a song writer and singer and it is apparent that this work has been a labour of love.
