Bella’s Bessie Doll

Bella mopped the floor. She picked up her toys. She washed the dishes. She took Bo for a walk. She helped Mama fold clothes.

“Is there anything else I can do?” Bella asked.

Mama laughed. “No, Bella. You’ve done a good job.”


Bella had been good all year.

In class, she wrote her ABCs. She raised her hand quietly. She helped others.

At home, Bella even helped Mama change Thalia, her baby sister.


By Christmas Eve, Bella was tired from doing all that work. But she knew it would be worth it.

This Christmas, she wanted a very special gift. Bella wanted a Bessie doll. If Bella got Bessie, this would be the best Christmas ever.
