Nobody likes me nursery rhyme
The Classic Slave Narratives by Henry Louis Gates Jr.The Life of Olaudah Equiano (finished January 2011)
This story at first was indeed a challenge for me. The language and words the author uses made me re-read pages a few times to understand what he was talking about. Of all the stories in this novel, this one was the most difficult as well as long. Equiano detailed his entire life as a slave to when he was free. He witnessed first hand the harshness and cruelty humans can inflict on one another. This was truly a coming of age story.
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl
This is another exceptional piece of work re-told by a slave of her experiences. The author takes the reader through a journey of her life as a slave. This story is important in that it described the community of slaves and their relationship with their owners. Harriet told her story under the alias of Linda to preserve her identity. As a child she was treated fairly. She was taught to read. However, when her mistress died, she was given to a new master. Her new master, Flint was trying to have sexual relations with her. That was where the story started its climax. This story showed how slaves, specifically women dealt with the abuses of their masters. I would recommend this book to everyone.
The History of Mary Prince
Mary Princes narrative is a very detailed recollection. She makes the reader feel as if they are in her shoes. She describes her treatment as a slave in the West Indies. It seems that as she was sold to new masters her treatment became worse. I feel that Mr. Wood took Mary to England and Mary tried to get her freedom. However, Mr. Wood doesn’t want to free her. In my opinion I would let her go because she is only one slave. I wouldn’t want to spend all my time trying to get one slave back when there are many more. This narrative helps to disprove the idea that slaves are “animals.”
Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass
Frederick Douglass’s narrative is one of a kind. His narrative was written with a variety of literary devices such as: theme, conflict, imagery, irony and many others. Douglass’ narrative has changed the way I view the ability of slaves. He clearly described his time in bondage to the moment he escaped and became free. Even though Frederick wasn’t very educated, he was able to write this astounding piece of literature. I recommend that everyone read this narrative
Nobody Likes Me - Family Sing Along - Muffin Songs
Long, thin, slimy ones, Short, fat, juicy ones, Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms. Down goes the first one, Down goes the second one, Oh, how they wiggle and squirm. Up comes the first one, Up comes the second one, Oh how they wiggle and squirm. Here's another version: Nobody likes me, Everybody hates me! Guess I'll go eat worms. Chorus Long, slim slimy ones, Short, fat juicy ones, Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy, wuzzy worms. First you get a bucket, Then you get a shovel, Oh how they wiggle and squirm.
Nursery rhymes and songs, like this one, are amazing teaching tools. They help children develop language skills by showcasing the different sounds of language. But, the social interaction is just as important.

Nobody Loves Me - SONG - Sonsense Nongs - Kids' Poems and Stories With Michael Rosen
HE great encouragement which has been given by the public to the previous editions of this little work, satisfactorily proves that, notwithstanding the extension of serious education to all but the very earliest periods of life, there still exists an undying love for the popular remnants of the ancient Scandinavian nursery literature. The infants and children of the nineteenth century have not, then, deserted the rhymes chanted so many ages since by the mothers of the North. This is a "great nursery fact"—a proof that there is contained in some of [page iv] these traditional nonsense-rhymes a meaning and a romance, possibly intelligible only to very young minds, that exercise an influence on the fancy of children. It is obvious there must exist something of this kind; for no modern compositions are found to supply altogether the place of the ancient doggerel. The nursery rhyme is the novel and light reading of the infant scholar.
I have known it for 65 years as: Nobody loves me everybody hates me I'm going into the garden to eat worms. Long thick slimy ones. Short fat sticky ones. Watch them wiggle and squirm. First you bite their heads off. Then you squeeze their guts out. Nobody loves me, everybody hates me.
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I think I'll go eat worms! Big fat juicy ones, Eensie weensy squeensy ones, See how they wiggle and squirm! Down goes the first one, down goes the second one, Oh how they wiggle and squirm! Up comes the first one, up comes the second one, Oh how they wiggle and squirm! I bite off the heads, and suck out the juice, And throw the skins away! Nobody knows how fat I grow, On worms three times a day!
