Poetry Friday: Sally Go Round the Sun


I'm enjoying these English Mother Goose rhymes. It's fun to find ones that are unfamiliar to me. Enjoy this with your totz! Can you sing along?

Sally go round the chimney pots,
On a Saturday afternoon.

Then I found picture books that carry this title!
Her's one by Edith Fowke.
