Bedtime Stories Waiting to be Told



This little cushion is made for the pram or the cot
of a new baby that will be joining us next month.
It holds the beginnings of four bedtime stories waiting to be told:

The flower with the heart of gold,
The little Bird who didn't like the cold,
The lonely pot looking for a friend,
The pink rabbit whose party was rained.

And there are bubbles, because who doesn't like bubbles.
