Hi, I'm Little Brushwood!

I’m a Shiba Inu.

Maybe someday I will be all grown up, but today I am just a Little Pup.

Here are some stories I’d like to tell you, about the things that I happily do.

So pick up these books for your very own. Please read them to your kids until they’re grown!

The Garden Gnome

Mom went outside to gather up her garden tools.

Little Brushwood came along carrying some spools.

The spools were strings of seeds for this year’s new garden,

To plant in the ground that is no longer hardened.

Mom picked up one small tool from the bucket she brought,

Then knelt down near the very large landscaping rock.

She dug in the dirt and created a short trench,

As Little Pup watched from the nearby garden bench.

Mom reach for the spool that Little Pup had carried,

Laying it in the hole for it to be buried.

When she finished, she pulled out the last thing from home,

And added the funny hat-wearing garden gnome.
