Mary Sawyer was a real little girl who really did have a little lamb. She lived in Massachucetts (USA). Her brother suggested that she take her pet lamb to school, and she did. Either a young man who was studying to be a minister and was visiting her school that day wrote a poem about it, and then Sarah Hale finished the rest of the poem, or Sarah wrote the whole thing herself. We don’t know for sure.
A woman named Sarah Josepha Hale is said to have written a poem about that day in 1830. The same year, a man named Lowell Mason gave the poem a tune, and it became the song we know today. The photos below are of the little red school house where Mary took her lamb. The picture below of the poem was from a Mother Goose book published more than 70 years later, in 1901.
