A little girl wants a whole list of gadgets for her birthday, but ... SURPRISE! Grandma gives her a lemon tree instead. What is a girl to do?
Deenihan has taken the adage “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” to its literal end. So much fun! Great mini lessons on perseverance, ingenuity, and friendship.
