The Story: Suzy went to sleep every night with her many stuffed animal friends. Among them was her favorite dolly which always slept beside her. But one night she could not find her dolly. It had disappeared. Perhaps she had mislaid it, or left it at a friend's house, or simply lost it.

Well, when she discovered that it was missing she began to cry, and called for her mother and father to find it. They searched and searched, but no dolly. Her father offered to buy her another one, but it could never replace her favorite. She was very sad.

About a month later her mother presented her with a surprise which made up for the loss of her dolly and made her very happy. No, it was not a new one. Would you like to read this story to find out what it was?
