The earliest book I know of kids' folk songs is William Wells Newell's Games and Songs of American Children, published in 1884. A new version came out in 1998.

There are lots of other books on kids' songs including Brown Girl in the Ring (on West Indian ones). Just look in the library, and ye shall find!
