     One sunny day Kenneth Aaron Bower, age 2, from Peoria, Illinois was enjoying
the afternoon with James, Steven, and Bobby.  Suddenly, Mother Goose landed in front
of him.
"Oh fiddle de de, fiddle de dum, I was visiting Old King Cole and I have lost my way
home!" exclaimed Mother Goose.

"Please do not worry, Mother Goose.  I will help you find your way home," Kenneth
offered eagerly.
They soon came upon an old woman living in a giant shoe.
"Let's ask for directions," suggested Kenneth.
There were so many children playing that Mother Goose and Kenneth didn't know what
to do.

In the distance Kenneth saw brightly colored balloons flying high in the air.  So, they
strolled down the cobblestone road toward Humpty Dumpty's house.  
"Oh help, I'm falling!" yelled Humpty Dumpty.
"We will put you back together again," reassured the king's men.
Everyone was very busy helping Humpty Dumpty, so Kenneth and Mother Goose
decided to ask someone else for directions.

"Up ahead I see Little Miss Muffet sitting on a tuffet.  I'll bet she can help," said Kenneth.
But everyone was frightened away by a huge spider wearing a little brown hat.  Kenneth
was so scared he wished James, Steven, and Bobby could have been there to help.

They wandered a while and came upon a beautiful garden of colorful flowers with smiling
faces.
"The blossoms are beautiful, Mary, Mary!  How does you garden grow?" inquired
Kenneth.
"With silver bells and cockle shells, and pretty maids all in a row," answered Mary, Mary,
quite contrary.

Kenneth and Mother Goose followed the path and heard pretty music from a distant
fiddle.  As they strolled closer, Kenneth saw a cow jump over the moon and a dish run
away with the spoon.  Everybody laughed so much to see such a sight that Kenneth
forgot to ask for directions.

Kenneth looked up and saw a huge pumpkin house with windows in a lovely garden.
"Let's ask Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater, for help," suggested Kenneth.
"Can you help Mother Goose find her way home? Kenneth asked Peter, Peter.
"I would love to help,  but I am busy eating pumpkins," replied Peter, Peter.

A merry melody caught the attention of Kenneth and Mother Goose.  Everyone was
skipping in a circle and playing ring around the rosies.
"Come on, let's join the fun!" giggled Kenneth.
So, Mother Goose and Kenneth played until they all fell down.

Kenneth turned around and heard the tic-toc tic-toc of hickory, dickory, dock.
"I see a giant clock with a happy face," announced Kenneth.  The clock struck one and a
small, grey mouse ran down.
Kenneth remarked, "Gee whiz, it's getting late.  I must return to my home in Peoria,
Illinois
.  James, Steven, and Bobby will be worried.

Kenneth told Mother Goose, "Twinkle, twinkle little star will guide us to your home."
Mother Goose thanked Kenneth for helping her return home.  Kenneth waved good-bye
and promised to visit Mother Goose again.
Kenneth thought, "I can't wait to tell James, Steven, and Bobby about my wonderful
adventure.
