"A little finger play my Sicilian grandmother used to say... it is like "this little piggy went to market". You make a circle in the palm of the child's hand while saying the first two lines, then wiggle each finger starting with the thumb. The last line is the baby finger and is just, I think, nonsense words."


*"Peedee pedito" is just a noise.
