I just received this email from Jennifer…
My husband has started repeating the following rhyme (a call and response type of thing) with our 3 children. He is sure that it is “real”? and thinks he has seen it in print. I have never heard it. Unfortunately, he can’t remember all of it. Any takers? Here is what I know…
“Want to read a book? Book done read.
Want to go to bed? Bed not made.
Want some lemonade? Lemonade sour.
Want to climb a tower? Tower too high.
Want a piece of pie? Pie too sweet.
Want a piece of meat? Meat too tough.”?
…..this is the part he can’t remember…
“Want to say Goodbye? Goodbye.”?
If anyone is familiar with this rhyme, please comment below.
