Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater

Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater
Had a wife but couldn't keep her.
Put her in a pumpkin shell
and there he kept her very well.

Nursery rhymes are a part of daily instruction for kindergarten pupils in The Reading Room. Today we introduced one that was unfamiliar to most of the children.  So listening to and discussing each stanza made for some interesting comments: 

"She should have told her husband-- NO way!"
"Oh my, how slimy that would have been.
"I think it would have been too cramped in a pumpkin."
"What was he thinking?"
"You are kidding me!  Is this for real?"
"I am not sure that he's a very nice person."
