In the Lavender Nursery the children tip toe to the table like little mice to quiet themselves for snack time. First, they listen to a little verse:
There is such a little mouse
Who lives in such a little house,
Out at night she softly creeps
When everyone is fast asleep.
But at the very break of day
She quickly, quickly runs away
The verse is followed by a wholesome snack of brown rice, cornmeal biscuits and apples, or bread.
