Name the title of the Primary song each riddle is about. All are in the Children’s Songbook, but beware—sometimes the first words of a song are not its title!

1. Not sick, not poor, and not dumb—

Sing me, and you won’t feel glum.

____________________

2. After Friday, and before Sunday is the name of this song.

If you pick the right day, you can’t go wrong!

____________________

3. We weren’t the moms and dads

When we came across the plains.

We walked and walked and walked and walked

And prayed and played our games.

____________________

4. I’m tall, and I like to reach for the sky.

The birds build their nests in my branches up high.

____________________

5. I start out very fat and round.

Children build me on the ground.

White and cold, outdoors I stay.

When the sun comes out, I melt away.

____________________

6. When Daddy comes home, I never miss—

I give him a hug, and I give him a kiss.

____________________

7. A place of love and beauty,

It’s where I plan to go.

Forever families are sealed there.

It’s the house of God, I know.

____________________

8. Something white that goes “pop!”

Grows on our apricot tree.

It comes in the spring

And is lovely to see.

____________________

9. My family’s oh-so-good to me!

To live with them always is my plan.

And I can do it because, you see,

The Lord has shown me how I can.

____________________

10. My teacher tells me stories

‘Bout a people far away

To whom God gave a promised land

To keep if they’d obey.

____________________

11. Courage, service, truth—

Red, yellow, and blue—

Each stands for a message;

Each is a symbol true.

____________________

12. Two men’s houses were rained hard upon.

The one on rock still stands; the one on sand is gone!
