This 1st edition of "My Best Nest" has a typographical error that resulted in a word substitution.

The repeated usage of the word "time" in the rhyme couplet shown below is the error.

 "One piece at a time, each time I carry.

   Busy at work, I feel quite merry."

The word the author intended uses the same four letters but in a different order.

What was the author's intended word?

Does the change affect the meaning of the sentence?

How would you have written the rhyme for this illustration?

One piece at a time, each item I carry.

Find a word that starts with each of the letters:

T  __  __  __

I   __  __  __
