Peter Patter Nursery Rhyme Book



The Peter Patter Nursery Rhyme Book contains old nursery rhymes from centuries past. Many of our favorite mother goose nursery rhymes were included in this book. We've printed it here with the original graphics. Enjoy!




PETER PATTER told them to me,
All the little rhymes,
Whispered them among the bushes
Half a hundred times.

Peter lives upon a mountain
Pretty near the sun,
Knows the bears and birds and rabbits
Nearly every one;
Has a home among the alders,
Bed of cedar bark,
Walks alone beneath the pine trees
Even when it’s dark.

Squirrels tell him everything
That happens in the trees,
Cricket in the gander-grass
Sings of all he sees;
Rimes from bats and butterflies,
Crabs and waterfowl;
But the best of all he gets
From his Uncle Owl.

Sometimes when its day-time,
But mostly in the night,
They sit beneath an oak tree
And hug each other tight,
And tell their rimes and riddles
Where the catty creatures prowl
Funny little Peter Patter
And his Uncle Owl.



A COPPER DOWN A CRACK

Jingle, jingle, Jack,
A copper down a crack.
Twenty men and all their wives,
With sticks and picks and pocket knives,
Digging for their very lives
To get the copper back.

I’M MUCH TOO BIG FOR A FAIRY

I’m much too big for a fairy,
And much too small for a man,
But this is true:
Whatever I do,
I do it the best I can.

THE ANIMAL SHOW

Father and mother and Bobbie will go
To see all the sights at the animal show.
Where lions and bears
Sit on dining room chairs,

Where a camel is able
To stand on a table,
Where monkeys and seals
All travel on wheels,

And a Zulu baboon
Rides a baby balloon.
The sooner you’re ready, the sooner we’ll go.
Aboard, all aboard, for the Animal Show!

TOMMY TRIMBLE

Billy be nimble,
Hurry and see
Old Tommy Trimble
Climbing a tree.

He claws with his fingers
And digs with his toes.
The longer he lingers
The slower he goes.

DICKIE, DICKIE DEXTER

Dickie, Dickie Dexter
Had a wife and vexed her.
She put him in a rabbit cage
And fed him peppermint and sage
Dickie, Dickie Dexter.
