Billy also has two mittens.

All was quiet all over the house
The only one up was a little grey mouse.

One, two, three,
Look at me!

I bought some candy at the store,
I ate it all and still want more.

My frisky, fuzzy, furry cat,
Is sound asleep upon the mat.

I carry to work women and men.

My little brown shoes were terribly tight,
They pinched and squeezed with all their might.

Go to church on Sunday,
Then to school on Monday.

We had such fun on the merry-go-round.

His toes and his shoes do not meet.

Please leave some for me.

Falls asleep on the tiny mat.

“Good morning”, said May,
Melinda and Mary just ran away.
