This nursery rhyme is one of the children’s favourite rhymes. Its about a turtle who’s name is Tiny Tim he gets put in the bath tub to see if he could swim.While he is swimming he drinks up all the water and eats up all the soap and becomes sick with a bubble in his throat. The children’s favourite part of the rhyme is at the end when they use their hands to create the effect of a big bubble about to pop and then they shout pop.
I had a little turtle, his name was Tiny Tim.
I put him in the bathtub, to see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap.
And now he’s sick in bed, with a bubble in his throat!
