Emily and Daisy
by Elsa Beskow
Emily may be small but she is given plenty of responsibility. She wants to go play in the sandpile but Daisy the cow needs watching. The fence is broken and if Daisy gets into the clover she will die! Good thing there lives a family of gnomes and a friendly dog nearby to aid her.
Give with: a cow shaped pitcher perfect for livening up those mornings where cold cereal & milk is the only option.
Give to: a toddler ready to accept more responsibility. Also anyone who grew up with cows or dreams of a meadow of their own.
Give as: an apology for forgetfulness or losing something you borrowed.
