Strawberries in the Snow

“Oh dear,”said the girl, "There are no strawberries to be found in winter;the ground is frozen, and the snow covers everything”...

When she entered the wood she saw a little house with three little men peeping out of it. She wished them good day...

“What are you doing here in the wood this winter time?”...

“Oh," answered she, "I have to get a basket of strawberries,and I must not go home without them."

When she had gone outside…

the little men talked among themselves about what they should do for her…

the girl was doing as the little men had told her, and had cleared the snow from the back of the little house, and what do you suppose she found? Fine ripe strawberries, showing dark red against the snow!

Then she joyfully filled her little basket full.
