Pysansky Eggs


Today Big Girl Gabriella is sick. She has a very bad cold and she can’t quit sneezing. Dot and Mae are trying to help her feel better. They are going to make her hot tea and read her a nice book. A good book to read – especially since Easter is coming up – is a book named “Rechenka’s Eggs.” Dot and Mae highly recommend this book – they love the story and the beautiful illustrations, and they think you will too.

Dot and Mae were taking a walk this morning, and while returning home carrying a small basket of cinnamon rolls that they were going to eat for breakfast, they ran into the chicken couple who live on another shelf in the china cupboard.

Dream Weaving


Hello, Dear Readers! While Dot and Mae were out for their morning walk, they decided to take a new route . They found this lovely little bridge and decided to cross it and find out what was on the other side. It’s always good to try new things and take risks, don’t you think?

They were in quite a hurry because Chihiro had lost her umbrella and they were out looking for it. When they saw Dot and Mae they stopped to ask the little girls if they had seen the umbrella which was pink with a white apple blossom pattern on it. Chihiro was quite distressed to loose her umbrella, as it was her favorite one. Dot and Mae hadn’t seen it, but they offered to help look. They spent some time searching all around the area, but the umbrella was no where to be found. After some time, Chihiro remembered that she hadn’t brought her umbrella out after all and that she had left it back in her closet. Boy, did she feel stupid! Haven’t you ever done something so silly? Dot and Mae have, so they just laughed with Chihiro and Takashi about their funny adventure. Continue reading
