Milly-Molly-Mandy

Posted on

In keeping with last week’s theme of a pink tea party, I wanted to quickly share a gift Daughter got that she loved.  I am still looking all over for those pictures, and I’ve gotten a bit frustrated because I had them, but oh well.  On to Daughter’s new favorite gift…

A neighbor who shares my penchant for literature gave Daughter Milly-Molly-Mandy, which is a series of stories from the mid-1920s about a little girl named, you guessed it, Milly-Molly-Mandy.  The stories are sweet, and Daughter can relate to them on any number of levels.  The stories are short enough that they can be read at almost anytime, but the pictures a minimal enough that you get to use your imagination too.  Finally, the stories aren’t overly moralistic, so Milly-Molly-Mandy has the same problems that Daughter has and handles them in a similar way too.

Aside from shamelessly plugging this book, I also wanted to make a point.  A well-chosen book, such as this one, makes a remarkable gift.  I can guarantee that we will be reading this book for the next few years, which is the sign of a good gift (and book, for that matter).  My point is that a gift doesn’t have to be expensive in order to be good or appreciated.  A good, classic book will fit the bill anytime.
