Chapter One

Emily and her big brother Speight came to visit Granny Rene and Grandpa Bill. Emily is 3 and Speight is 5.

They love to visit their grandparents and play in the garden behind the house. One morning after breakfast Emily asked, "Grandpa Bill, may I go outside and play with Speight?" "Of course you may," said Grandpa Bill.

After a time, Granny Rene went out to see what Emily and Speight were up to. Emily had just picked up a flower that was on the ground. She showed Granny Rene what she had found. "Oh my, what a beautiful flower," said Granny Rene. "I think that is a magical flower. That reminds me of a story my mother told me when I was your age."

Grandpa Bill came out to sit with them and hear the story. "Sometimes, a very tiny fairy with magical powers hides in flowers to find little boys and girls she can help," said Granny Rene. "She especially wants to help children remember to use the potty."

"How does she do that?" asked Emily. Granny Rene explained what her mommy had told her. "If you put this flower at the foot of your bed, the fairy will visit while you re asleep and sprinkle magic fairy dust on you. It's the fairy dust that helps you remember to use the potty."

Emily stopped and thought, and then she asked, "How would I know if she came already?" "I don't think she came already because you just found the flower today," Granny Rene explained. "My mommy used to put my hair in a ponytail at night, and she told me that the night my fairy came, the fairy undid the ponytail to let me know she visited."

"But Granny Rene, what if you re a boy with no ponytail?" asked Speight curiously. "My mommy said that when the fairy visited my brother, she left his favorite toy at the foot of his bed," answered Granny Rene. "She does that for little girls too, if they dont have ponytails."

"Now listen very carefully," said Granny Rene. "You have to remember this because this is very important. When the fairy visits you and sprinkles the fairy dust, if you still don't remember to use the potty, the fairy loses her wings and then she can't fly."
