1. Happy Thoughts

The world is so full
of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all
be as happy as kings.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

2. Thirty Days Hath September

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November.
All the rest have thirty-one,
Except February alone,
Which has but 28 days clear,
And 29 in each leap year.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

Two little dicky birds
Sat on a wall,
One called Peter,
One called Paul.
Fly away, Peter,
Fly away, Paul!
Come back, Peter,
Come back, Paul.

4. Time to Rise

A birdie with a yellow bill
Hopped up on the window-sill.
Cocked his shining eye and said:
“Ain’t you ‘shamed, you sleepy-head?”

by Robert Louis Stevenson

5. Hoppity

Christopher Robin goes
Hoppity, hoppity,
Hoppity, hoppity, hop.
Whenever I tell him
Politely to stop it, he
Says he can’t possibly stop.
If he stopped hopping,
He couldn’t go anywhere,
Poor little Christopher
Couldn’t go anywhere…
That’s why he always goes
Hoppity, hoppity,
Hoppity,
Hoppity,
Hop.

6. Jack Sprat

Jack Sprat would eat no fat,
His wife would eat no lean.
And so between the two of them
They licked the platter clean.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

7. Peas and Honey

I eat my peas with honey,
I’ve done it all my life.
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps them on my knife.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

8. At the Seaside

When I was down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
To dig the sandy shore.
My holes were empty like a cup,
In every hole the sea came up,
Till it could come no more.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

9. Monday’s Child

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for his living.
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

10. Doctor Foster

Doctor Foster went to Glo’ster,
In a shower of rain;
He stepped in a puddle right up to his middle,
And never went there again.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

11. Whole Duty of Children

A child should always say what’s true
And speak when he is spoken to,
And behave mannerly at table;
At least as far as he is able.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

12. Bed in Summer

In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.

I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree,
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet
Still going past me in the street.

And does it not seem hard to you,
When all the sky is clear and blue,
And I should like so much to play,
To have to go to bed by day?

by Robert Louis Stevenson

13. Furry Bear

If I were a bear,
And a big bear too,
I shouldn’t much care
If it froze or snew;
I shouldn’t much mind
If it snowed or friz—
I’d be all fur-lined
With a coat like his!

For I’d have fur boots and a brown fur wrap,
And brown fur knickers and a big fur cap.
I’d have a fur muffle-ruff to cover my jaws,
And brown fur mittens on my big brown paws.
With a big brown furry-down up to my head,
I’d sleep all the winter in a big fur bed.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

14. Goldy Locks

Goldy Locks, goldy locks,
Wilt thou be mine?
Thou shalt not wash dishes,
Nor yet feed the swine;
But sit on a cushion,
And sew a fine seam,
And feed upon strawberries,
Sugar and cream.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

15. Rain

The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

16. A Thought

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

17. Looking Forward

When I am grown to man’s estate
I shall be very proud and great,
And tell the other girls and boys
Not to meddle with my toys.

by Robert Louis Stevenson

18. Love Between Brothers and Sisters

Whatever brawls disturb the street,
There should be peace at home;
Where sisters dwell and brothers meet,
Quarrels should never come.
Birds in their little nests agree;
And ’tis a shameful sight,
When children of one family
Fall out and chide and fight.

by Isaac Watts

19. A Farewell

My fairest child, I have no song to give you;
No lark could pipe to skies so dull and gray;
Yet, ere we part, one lesson I can leave you
For every day.

Be good, sweet maid, and let who will be clever;
Do noble things, not dream them all day long:
And so make life, death, and that vast forever
One grand, sweet song.

by Charles Kingsley

20. To a Child

Small service is true service while it lasts:
Of humblest friends, bright creature! scorn not one:
The daisy, by the shadow that it casts,
Protects the lingering dewdrop from the sun.

by William Wordsworth
