THE SNOW BIRDS.
from Cinderella The Little Glass Slipper
It had snowed very hard. Ralph and Edward, who were visiting
Grandma in the country, had to stay in the house all day.
When they went to bed it was still snowing, and every time they
woke up during the night, they could hear the wind sighing and
