The Real Mother Goose

Many of us have read the Mother Goose nursery rhymes as children. We read these same rhymes to the students at Lehigh Valley Children's Centers, and now have taken it to the next level! The children of Pre-K Counts at LVCC's South Mountain had a real Mother Goose visit this week.

Mother Goose brought along some friends from her farm. The children at first didn't know what to make of the rat named Templeton, but soon warmed up to him. They loved holding the two little turtles. Farmer Rachel was also here with her farm dog, Moe, by her side. The preschoolers practiced gentle touches with all the animals and especially with Mother Goose's baby, named Todd.

Farmer Rachel read to us and described life on the farm. We learned about all different animals and had lots of fun!
