SELIGOR'S CASTLE PRESENTS
I like brown eggs far the best;
Out of a brown old haystack nest,
Under a brown hen, cosy, stout,
With brown fowls hovering round about.
Long ago, so I've been told,
A goose laid eggs of purest gold.
(Eggs of gold in a gold in a golden shell
Mean none to eat, and all to sell !)
Eggs of gold would build a town,
Eggs of gold would buy a crown,
Buy a crown and make a king,
And grant his lady anything !
I have brown eggs for my tea,
Served in an egg-cup bought for me !
So keep your gold and all the rest,
I like brown eggs far the best !

SELIGOR'S CASTLE PRESENTS Here is a little tale from the Russian Vinnie Puuf.
RING A RING A ROSES Ring a ring a roses, a pocket full of posies, Atichoo.... Atichoo.... We all fall down.
Cows in the meadow, eating buttercups, Atichoo.... Atichoo... We all jump up..
Horses in the paddock, run for their might, Atichoo... Atichooo... Jump with fright.
Children in bed, whisper do not speak, Atichoo... Atichooo... Lie down to asleep.
Millions of massive raindrops have fallen on the ground; They have danced on the house-tops, they have hidden in the ground. They were liquid-like musicians, with anything for keys, Beating tunes upon the windows, keeping time upon the trees.
You shall have an apple, I shall have a plum, You shall have a rattle-basket, When your dad comes home.
A man in the wilderness asked of me How many strawberries grew in the sea. I answered him as I thought good: As many red herrings grow in the wood.
See-saw, sacaradown, Which is the way to London Town? One foot up, and one foot down, That is the way to London Town.
King Pippin built a fine new hall Pastry and pie-crust were the wall; Windows made of black pudding and white Slates were pancakes - you ne'er saw the like.
When little Fred was called to bed he always acted right; He kissed Mamma, and then Papa, and wished them both good-night. He made no noise, like naughty boys, but gently went upstairs Directly when he was sent, and always said his prayes;
These video's concern animals behaviour, always check to see if you feel they are okay for your children age.
This is a little different, but very interesting. DODIE, SELIGOR AND DIDDILY AND THE DEE DOT'S . HIP - HIP - HOORAY!
I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow--
Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball,
And he sometimes goes so little that there's none of him at all.
He hasn't got a notion of how children ought to play, And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
He stays so close behind me, he's a coward you can see; I'd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me!
One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
FLY A KITE
I often sit and wish that I Could be a kite up in the sky, And ride upon the breeze, and go Whatever way it chanced to blow; Then I could look beyond the town, And see the river winding down, And follow all the ships that sail, Like me, before the merry gale, Until at last with them I came To some place with a foreign name
William Blake wrote this little cradle song. It is rather beautiful, don't you think ?
SLEEP, BEAUTY BRIGHT
Sleep, sleep, beauty bright, Dreaming in the joys of night; Sleep, sleep; in thy sleep Little sorrows sit and weep.
Sweet babe, in thy face Soft desires I can trace Secret joys and secret smiles, Pretty little infant wiles.
As the softest limbs I feel, Smiles as of the morning steal O'er thy cheek and o'er thy breast Where thy little heart doth rest.
Oh, thy cunning wiles that creep In thy little heart asleep ! When the little heart doeth wake Then the dreadful light shall break.
THE MAN IN THE MOON by Edith E Millard 1832 - 1891 The Man in the Moon is a friend of mine, He comes when the stars begin to shine: I fancy he lights them, one by one, And never rests till his work is done.
Sometimes I do not see him at all, And I think, most likely, he has to call And shout for the stars that would rather try To play hide and seek in the big blue skies.
The other night, to my great surprise, The Man in the Moon had tears in his eyes; He looked so sad and his mouth drooped down, And he gave me the most tremendous frown! "Poor Man in the Moon, I am sorry!" I said, "Have you lost some stars?" but he shook his head; He could not tell me what was amiss, So I waved my hand and threw him a kiss.
For more than a week there was rain or snow, And the wind was very angry- I heard it blow; But the Man in the Moon I could not see, The dark clouds hid him away from me.
Last night he peeped through the window pane, I declare I hardly knew him again! I tried to sketch him for Nurse to see, A jollier face there never could be. His eyes were smiling at me like this, And all because I threw him a kiss!

One, two, three, four, five, Once I caught a fish alive.
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
Then I let him go again.
Why did you let him go, Because he bit my finger so
Which finger did it bite,
This little finger on my right.

PORRIDGE Share I don't like porridge, Skinny and brown; Waiting for breakfast, When I com down - Whatever happens, However late, Porridge is always Sure to wait!
Nobody steals it, They clear the dish Of eggs and bacon, Or cheese, or fish; They eat the butter, And take the tea, And all the good things Meant for me.
BUT Whatever happens, However late, Porridge is always Sure to wait!
I believe this poem to be written by Elizabeth Fleming in the Children's Companion circa 1920's

Hush-a-bye, baby, on the tree top!
When the wind blows the cradle will rock;
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall;
Down will come baby, bough, cradle and all.
Rock-a-bye, baby, thy cradle is green;
Father's a nobleman, Mother's a queen;
Sister's a lady, who wears a gold ring; And Brother's a drummer, who plays for the king.
Hush-a-bye, baby, way up on high;
Never mind, baby, Mommy is nigh; Swinging the baby all around --
Hush-a-bye, baby, up hill and down.
Rain rain go away, Come again another day Hide your clouds let out the sun Slow the wind, till daylights done. Rain, rain go away, we all want to play today. When we all are fast asleep Across the night sky, you can creep

Bath Time for Baby
A rubber duck and a sailboat; I watch my bath toys sink and float.
They keep me company in the tub Til Mommy makes me soap and scrub.
I love to take a bath each night, And go to bed all clean and bright.
