Poems & Rhymes

Walk, walk with me!
Walk, walk with me!
Walk along the road,
Let’s walk like a toad!
Walk, walk with me!
Walk, walk with me!
All done thanks!

Jump, jump with me!
Jump, jump with me!
Jump on the green,
Like a jumping bean.
Jump, jump with me!
Jump, jump with me!
All done thanks!

Hop, hop with me!
Hop, hop with me!
Hop like a bunny,
And a bee to honey.
Hop, hop with me!
Hop, hop with me!
All done thanks!
