You learn something new every day

My kids have recently become enamored of a book of nursery rhymes that my parents bought for us for Christmas (in 2009 maybe?)  It’s this book:

It’s a cute book, one nursery rhyme per two page spread with big beautiful illustrations.  (That is why Will tolerates it.)  It’s the classics, of course.  Some have slightly different wording than I’m used to, and others have verses I’m not familiar with, or are missing verses I know.  But there is one in there that I had NEVER heard before.  It goes like this:
Bat, bat,
Come under my hat, 
And I’ll give you a slice of bacon;
And when I bake
I’ll give you a cake
If I am not mistaken.
Have you ever heard that nursery rhyme?  I’m surprised to find a new (to me) nursery rhyme at 28, but I guess that’s what happens when you’ve got toddlers.  Weird.

  1. That's so funny because that's the only book Amelia wants to read all day, every day now. I actually don't like her to read it, or touch it for that matter, because it's so nice and I don't want her getting it all yucky and bent up. Also, i had never heard Bat, Bat, but I think there are lots in there that I didn't know. :-/
