THE STARTwinkle twinkle little starHow I wonder what you areIUp above the world so highLike a diamond in the skyWhen the blazing sun is goneWhen he nothing shines uponThen you show your little lightTwinkle twinkle all the nightThen the trav ler in the darkThanks you for your tiny sparkHe could not see which way to goIf you did not twinkle soIn the dark blue sky you keepAnd often through my curtains peepFor you never shut your eyeTill the sun is in the skyAs your bright and tiny sparkLights the trav ler in the darkThough I know not what you areTwinkle twinkle little star

THE PET HENThe hen oh how fondly she cares for herbrood IShe watches them always provides themwith foodBeneath her soft wings they are warm allthe nightTo cherish and guard them is all her delightIf a hawk but approaches or danger is nighShe ll fly to their help and how shrill is hercry IAnd nothing she fears she cares for noharmsIf aught for her little one s safety alarmsI love the kind mother who takes suchgreat careAnd spreads out her wings to shelter themthereAnd the dear little chicks that run therewith delightWith covering so downy and soft eye scbright

THE COWThank you pretty cow that madePleasant milk to soak my breadEvery day and every nightWarm and fresh and sweet and whiteDo not chew the hemlock rankGrowing on the weedy bankBut the yellow cowslip eatThat will make it very sweetWhere the purple violet growsWhere the bubbling water flowsWhere the grass is fresh and finePretty cow go there and dineBaa I Baa I black sheepHave you any woolYes indeed and that I haveExactly two bags fullThere s one for busy BillyAnd one for tidy GraceBut nothing for the bad boyThat will not wash his face

DOLLY S TEA PARTYThese are my friends they have come totake teaThey re not at all noisy they don t disagreeI m sure each behaves in a ladylike wayNot one says a word that she ought not tosayOf course they are dolls they can t make anoiseThey look like young ladies We know theyare toysAs they can t speak at all it is certain that IMust ask all the questions and make eachreplySo all that I do and all that I sayShall be done and be said in a ladylike wayYou ll see dear mamma what care I willtakeBut please put me right if I make a mistake

I HE LITTE GIRL WHO WAS UNKIND TO HER SISTERGo go my naughty girl and kissYour little sister dearI must not have such things as thisNo noisy quarrels hereWhat little children scold and fightThat ought to be so mildOh Mary tis a shocking sightTo see an angry childI can t imagine for my partThe reason of your follyAs if she did you any hurtBy playing with your dollyGo Mary wipe her tears awayAnd make it up with kissesAnd never turn a pretty playTo such a pet as this is

MARY S LITTLE LAMBMary had a little lambIts fleece was white as snowAnd everywhere that Mary wentThe lamb was sure to goHe followed her to class one dayThat was against the ruleIt made the children laugh and playSTo see a lamb at schoolSo the teacher turned him outBut still he lingered nearAnd waited patiently aboutTill Mary did appearWhat makes the lamb love Mary soThe eager children pryOh Mary loves the larib you knowThe teacher did replyAnd you each gentle animalIn confidence may bindAnd make them follow at your willIf you are only kind

ROBIN REDBREASTCome robin so merryWith breast like a cherryFor now tis the blossoming SpringStretch open your throatPour forth a glad noteAnd spread out your beautiful wingNow the morning is clearSkim through the fresh airYour breakfast is ready in storeCome cheerily singAnd your crumbs we will bringAnd scatter them all round the doorNow light on the groundAnd hop all aroundAnd peck till you ve eaten your fillThen think of the nestWhere your little ones restAnd carry home some in your bill

THE SELFISH CHILDWhen Earnest was a little boyNo sooner did he get a toyThan he would say It s all my ownI want it for myself aloneHe never lent his horse and cartNor liked he from his kite to partAnd if his sister took it outAt once began to cry and poutSo no one loved the greedy boyWho never wished to share his joyAnrd friends who looked on Blanche andsmiledWould frown on him the selfish childI will not vex my PussyI know I am not pleasedOr happy or in comfortIf ever I am teasedI don t like to be worriedMyself and I will tryAnd do e en to dumb creaturesAs I would be done by
