Finally, a nursery rhyme has been revised to keep up with the times. Jack and Jill, that famous nursery rhyme about a boy who broke his crown, has been seemingly upgraded and we think the latest version sounds much better than the one we’ve been teaching kids since forever.
The original goes:
Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water,
Jack fell down
And broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.
So basically, we’ve been telling toddlers all over the world, about two children who walk up a hill to fetch water only to fall and roll down with a broken crown and an empty bucket. Ummm… Tumbled and went home to nurse a broken crown? That’s it? Not exactly a happy thing to teach a child now, is it?
This reworked Jack and Jill however tells us how the kids had a strong will even after they fell down and got right back up, determined not to tumble again. And not only did they not fall down this time, they also successfully brought back a full pail of water. A happy, positive ending.
Lesson well taught and hopefully shall be learned as well. Watch the new and improved Jack and Jill here:
