I remember quite vividly finding a worn hardback copy of this book when I was in grade school. I was fascinated with the rhymes, riddles and sayings. Many years ago I ordered my own paperback copy. I re-read it recently for a bit of nostalgia.
There's something to jog our memories, from tongue twisters like "Peter Piper" to counting games like "One potato, two potato" to riddles like this one:
I washed my hands in water
That never rained nor run;
I dried them with a towel
that was never wove nor spun.-- Dew and Sun
