A Day for Mother Goose
By Brenda B. Covert
1 Mother Goose looked out her window. What a sunny day! It was a great day for a salad and a walk.
2 Mother Goose ate a tasty green salad. Then she put on her best bonnet and went outside. Her bonnet strings flapped in the breeze.
3 "The sun feels good on my back!" Mother Goose said. She walked down the path. Mary's garden was ahead. Yellow, red, and blue blooms bobbed in a row.
4 Mary was not in her garden. Where could she be? Mother Goose liked the flowers, but she wanted to see her friend.
5 Further down the path was Miss Muffett's place. Her stool was still under the big oak tree. Mother Goose stopped to rest. Where was Miss Muffet? This was the time she used to eat her curds and whey! The little spider was not there, either.
6 Mother Goose tugged at her bonnet strings. "Where are my friends?" she wondered aloud. She went on her way down the path.
7 Humpty Dumpty's brick wall was ahead on the left. The big egg was not there. "Oh, I do hope that he has not fallen again," Mother Goose said. She hurried to see. No egg shells lay on the ground. "I do not know where Humpty is. At least he is not broken."
8 Someone would be home at the next stop. It was the big shoe! A family lived in it! The mother had many children. It was always a noisy place. Mother Goose liked to tell stories. The children loved to hear her stories.
9 The shoe was very quiet. Mother Goose looked around. There was nobody to see. Nimble Jack was not jumping over things. No kittens were crying about lost mittens. Jack and Jill were not at the top of the hill. They were not rolling down the hill, either.
