A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
' Little and good,' says the adage — and tha-t, no doubt, accounts at least in part for the popularity of Tommy the Tugboat among our under fives. Tommy is very small, and by no means handsome, but out he goes fearlessly every day about his business on the vast * rumbling, tumbling ' ocean, and he it is who rescues the beautiful but haughty Queen of the Sea, one of the greatest ships in the world, when she is ignominiously stuck on a sandbank. Tommy, in fact, has a strange affinity with our under fives. Like him they are small and seemingly unimportant creatures in a big world, and :t does them good to hear of him tackling difficulties with confidence and success. Even the Queen of the Sea apologises for being rude!
Daphne Oxenford brings back, today and -tomorrow, Dora Tharoher 's two stories about Tommy, together with a third, a new one, on Wednesday, while on Thursday and Friday comes Dorothy Smith with ' Mollie under the Apple Tree,' by Ruth Ainsworth. and ' The Little While Piano ' by Mary Harbett. Lorna Pegram returns today to introduce the programme6 for the next two weeks.
