Daisy is a

little

girl who asks a lot of questions...


Can I have new...

...shoes

...and a dress


...and a bike

...and an ice cream

...and...


...for each of these questions the answer was always the same.


Those things cost money and

money doesn’t

So, taking the last three coins left in her piggy bank, she decided to do something extraordinary.


down

her twisty-turny tunnel, to her very own secret underground garden.

and

down and down

Closing her eyes she vanished,


She reached the bottom and dug three little holes. Whispering a wish to each coin, she buried them deep in the ground.


She watered them everyday with special water from her fountain, bringing it all the way from the magic mountain.


She cut the grass, pulled up any weeds and tended to all the gardens needs.


She sang to the sun and soon the growing begun.


The first tree grew wide.


It had all her favourite treats. Lollipops and ice cream, muffins and sweets.

Daisy’s favourite tree grew

big


“

“

You will grow into a bubble tree

she had whispered to her biggest, shiniest coin.

And that is exactly what it did. Producing an endless supply of multi-coloured bubbles, dropping and popping on everyones head.


Daisy is

little

but she doesn’t need to be big. She has something


better. A big imagination and that doesn’t cost

Use your imagination and draw your very own tree
