The first literature that many American children come into contact with consists of Mother Goose rhymes. One of the very familiar ones is "Little Miss Muffet."Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet, Eating her curds and whey; When along came a spider, who sat down beside her, And frightened Miss Muffet away.
