Dot's Birthday Cake

from Boys And Girls Bookshelf - Happy Days





Once there was a little girl called Dot. And she was just five years
old. And she had a fine birthday cake. It was big and round, and it had
five beautiful little pink candles set in pink rosebuds on top.

Dot sat at the big table at dinner that day, and by and by they put a
pretty pink paper cap on her head and then brought in the birthday cake.
And the little candles were all burning bright. And when she saw it she
said, "Oh! oh! how lovely! It is just too pretty to cut!"

But her mama said, "I will cut it for you, dear." So she cut one piece
for Dot, and then she asked Dot, "Will Marie have a piece?" Marie was
Dot's big doll. And Dot looked at her and said, "Marie says, 'No, thank
you.'" And mama said, "Will Fuzzy have a piece?" Fuzzy was Dot's Teddy
Bear. And Dot looked at him and said: "He says, 'No, thank you.'" And
mama said, "Will papa have a piece?" And Dot said, "Oh, yes. Won't you,
papa?" And papa said, "Yes, please." And Dot said, "Mama, you will. You
must have a piece of my birthday cake." And mama said, "Yes, thank
you."

And mama cut the cake and gave Dot a piece and papa a piece and herself
a piece. But she left the parts of the cake where the candles were
burning,--one, two, three, four, five. And Dot's birthday cake lasted
one, two, three, four, five whole days before it was all gone.
