The Children's Book by  Horace E. Scudder
Table of Contents




Mary had a little lamb,

Its fleece was white as snow;

And everywhere that Mary went,

The lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school one day,—

That was against the rule;

It made the children laugh and play,

To see a lamb at school.

So the teacher turned him out,

But still he lingered near,

And waited patiently about,

Till Mary did appear.

Then he ran to her, and laid

His head upon her arm,

As if he said, "I'm not afraid,—

You'll keep me from all harm."

"What makes the lamb love Mary so?"

The eager children cry.

"Oh, Mary loves the lamb, you know,"

The teacher did reply.

Mrs. Hale
