THE TIP-TOE SONG
103
This song is specially designed to teach the little ones the useful art of noiseless stepping. It is not the easiest thing in the world to walk on tiptoe; and it is probable that many a valuable life has been lost in illness for want of the quiet, unbroken sleep that noisy and clumsy footsteps inside as well as outside the sick-room, have made impossible.
Walking on tiptoe is splendid discipline both for foot, and head; but care must be taken not to keep the children at it for any length of time, as it is extremely tiring, and apt to give cramp in the arch of the foot, or the calf of the leg.
The children must proceed in Indian file, and their voices sink to a whisper, at the end.
