Milly Molly Mandy
In a book written today, the main character would roll her eyes and protest when asked to help, then forget what she was supposed to buy. Then when the shopkeeper asked her if she wanted candy, the child would go ahead and buy candy. And then the child would forget to walk the dog.
This first story has so many character lessons. MMM is happy to be helpful, and has a cheerful attitude. She responds "Yes, Mother" and "Yes, Father" when her parents tell her to do something. She's respectful, responsible, and honest. Finally, she's generous, sharing the reward she receives with a friend.
Have you read MMM? What was your take?
