"This rhyme was recited to me by my mum when I was a little girl. It was recited by pointing to each finger, starting at the smallest finger and ending with the thumb (being thumper thumper thumper) and a little tickle to make the child laugh. My two year old gran-daughter can now recite the lyrics, therefore, we have kept this ancient rhyme going." -Adrian
