Presents coloring picture


Here’s another coloring picture from The Storyteller’s Abode. I used picmonkey again; I’m not good with straight lines – especially using a mouse to draw them – so my lines are quite wonky. But then my lines are always wonky so nothing new there!! Be sure to go to The Storyteller’s Abode to download your own copy of Presents Coloring Picture!!!!

Little Tommy Tucker

Hey Kiddies! I back after a week or so break. I won’t be around for long – I’m almost done with showing you all my rhymes. After I’m done, Sabina has to finish her latest book – she’s been on a two months hiatus  and it’s time she gets back to work. I am working on more rhymes but those will be for later in the year. In the meantime, here’s a little rhyme for you! Love and feathers, Auntie Goose

Original and miscellaneous…


Who, or what, was a Little Tommy Tucker?
Little ‘Tommy Tucker’ referred to in the words of this nursery rhyme was a colloquial term that was commonly used to describe orphans – Little Tommy Tucker. The orphans were often reduced to begging or ‘singing for their supper’. The reference to Little Tommy Tucker marrying and the lack of a wife reflects the difficulty of any orphan being able to marry due to their exceptionally low standing within the community. The first publication date for Little Tommy Tucker was 1829.
