Gram could hardly wait—Eve and Mama were coming to visit! But Mama will have to spend the day working in the house. What will she do to keep Baby Girl busy all…day…long?
What starts out as a visit to Gram’s house, turns into a big day on the farm for Eve. Come along for the ride as Gram, Eve, and Penny, the farm dog, zoom around exploring the flora and meeting the animals. There are curly-haired pigs, a mama cow and her calf, giant horses, wooly sheep, furry donkeys, clucking chickens, a tall llama, curious goats, and even Mischievous Misty, the most curious goat of all.
Eve toddled back and forth,
scooping and pouring,
until the bucket was empty.
“All done,” Gram said.
“Good job, Baby Girl!”
Gram picked up the pail
and headed back to the gate.
But Eve did not follow.
Gram looked back and saw
the little girl shaking her head
and twisting her foot.
