The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
Played alone with a rubber ball.
The ball is bounced. Each time an item is named the leg goes over the ball.
The child says:
A my name is Alice (or some name beginning with A)
And my husband's name is Alfred
We come from Alabama
And we eat Apples
The child does this through the whole alphabet.
