Read an Excerpt

From Chapter Rhymes and Jingles

Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,

Had a wife and couldn't keep her.

He put her in a pumpkin shell

And there he kept her very well.

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.

Patty-cake, patty-cake, Baker's man,

Bake me a cake as fast as you can.

Roll it up and roll it up.

And put it in the pan.

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey.

Along came a spider and sat down beside her

And frightened Miss Muffet away.
