/Thumbelina/
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A kind woman who had no children,
longed for a baby and would often say,
“How I would love to have a baby girl,
even a tiny little one.”
 
A beautiful fairy heard her wish one day,
and gave her a little seed to plant in a flowerpot.
 
When the seed bloomed into a tulip,
the woman saw a tiny, beautiful girl inside,
no bigger than her thumb.
 
She decided to call her Thumbelina.
