Bella & Abby
by Bertha Ann Irby
Bella and Abby is about a little girl, Bella, who wanted a baby doll, named Abby, so badly that she cried until she fell asleep. Bella’s parents cannot afford to purchase the baby doll. Bella goes to the supermarket with her mother just to see the doll. Bella’s siblings feel sorry for her and ask the manager if they can sweep the floors until they can purchase the doll for Bella. Bella’s siblings earn enough money to purchase the doll, and their mother, who did not have a job, was blessed with a job after the manager learns about the family’s hardship.
