The Real Mother Goose


I used to read this book as a child over and over again. I loved the nursery rhymes and didn't mind reading them over and over again. I found this the other day at the thrift store so I bought if for myself. Rhymes are good for children and my older girls missed out on this in their education so backtracking can't hurt.
My dame has lost her shoe,
My master's lost his fiddle-stick
And knows not what to do.
Cock-a-doodle do!
What is my dame to do?
Till master finds his fiddle-stick,
She'll dance without her shoe.
The Pumpkin-Eater
Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater,
Had a wife and couldn't keep her.
He put her in a pumkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.
