The reason you want to buy nursery rhymes? Because making good ones yourself is HARD!
Think it over. Really. Really think it over. Spending a little bit of money to buy these Charles Reasoner illustrated board books means you're done today. Boom. Then you just wait for some Humpty Dumpty, some This Little Piggy, some Itsy Bitsy Spider and some Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. If you DON'T buy them? You better hope you can rhyme intelligently.
Because what are you going to come up with on your own, huh? "Higgins in basket/Higgens in a tree/Their names are spelled quite different/Yet they're still family!" Man, a kid's gonna laugh that out of the room like Jay-Z did to Oasis. And then how will you win back their respect? Sending them to their room? Pfft. They won't be afraid of you after some wack nursery rhyme!
Trust us. They're classics for a reason. Unless you're a professional nursery rhyme writer, stick with these.
