Mother has a kitten,
Mother has a mouse,
Mother has a bird that sings
All around the house, 
Mother has a lammie, 
Mother has a chick;
All together have but two feet. 
Guess my riddle quick!
-Laura E. Richards

The Whole Duty Of Children
A child should always say what's true
And speak when he is spoken to, 
And behave mannerly at table:
At least so far as he is able. 
-Robert Louis Stevenson

"How many miles to Baby-Land?"
"Any one can tell;
Up one flight, 
To your right, 
Please to ring the bell."

"What do they do in Baby-Land?"
"Dream and wake and play, 
Laugh and crow, 
Shout and grow, 
Jolly times have they!"

"What do they say in Baby-Land?"
"Why, the oddest things;
Might as well
Try to tell
What a birdie sings!"

"Who is the queen of Baby-Land?"
"Mother, kind and sweet;
And her love, 
Born above, 
Guides the little feet."
-George Cooper
