A little girl was decorating a box with a gold wrapping paper to put it under the Christmas tree. Money was tight, so the girl‘s father punished her for wasting almost all roll of that expensive paper.

However, the next morning the girl brought the gift to her father. „This is for you, Daddy” – she said. He opened a box and found it empty, so he became angry again. „Don‘t you know, that when you give someone a gift, it is supposed that there would be something inside it” – he said severely.

The little girl looked at her father with tears in her eyes. „Daddy, this box is not empty, I filled it with my kisses, all for you“.

The father was stunned. He felt so embarrassed that could just put his arms around his little daughter and beg for her forgiveness.

For many years of his life the man kept that golden box near his bed. Wherever he felt sad and downhearted he opened the box and thought of love that the little child had put into it.

Each of us have been given a present of unconditional love from our children, family, friends and God. It is the most precious possession that anyone could hold.

I believe it is petty to miss such a satisfying cocktail experience. Simply go for it and cherish its hilarious moments.

And it is how this book landed on me and led me to ponder over its sagacious plot. This is about a lonely hen namely sprout who adopts a duck (Greentop) and its growing mutuality is what discussed in here. I have never read ‘Animal Farm’ by George Orwell but know its outline through reviews and can vouch that the animal character’s communications feel like humans do including the current one. This book is loaded with emotions and nobody can believe is translated from the Korean version by the author. The reason for the chosen title is revealed at the end and will pierce your heart for sure. Kindly have some wipes handy and gonna miss sprout kindness! 😢
