As I type this sentence, my little 2-year-old boy is sitting on my lap and belting out his version of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."
It takes me back to my own childhood that is coloured with memories of my grandmother singing me popular Sri Lankan baby nursery rhymes.
These beautiful baby nursery rhymes were about mother elephants who crossed rivers, the moon smiling down at sleeping children, golden butterflies, fluffy white rabbits and playful puppies.
