Question: Which popular nursery rhyme was based on a true story?

Answer: Back in 1815, a 9-year-old Massachusetts girl named Mary Sawyer nursed a sick and abandoned lamb back to health. The lamb followed her everywhere she went, including to school. Mary’s classmate John Roulstone wrote a poem about her and the lamb. Generations of children know it as “Mary Had a Little Lamb.”
