On the Lam

Lei ChicYour little one’s nursery rhyme friends are perfect for story time but don’t seem to be teaching any lessons in great style.

Sure, there is the old woman who loved shoes so much she lived in one - Unfortunately it was a combat boot she shared with a crowd. Wee Willie Winkie loved the night life but thought pajamas were acceptable attire for running through the town.
