On the 8th day of Christmas: Belinda

On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, eight maids a-milking…and Belinda, written and illustrated by Pamela Allen. 

Every day Mr Farmer tends his vegetables while Mrs Farmer milks Belinda the cow. 

There is always plenty of warm frothy milk for the dog, the cat, the pig in his pen, for cream and for butter for Mr Farmer's bread. 

Then Mrs Farmer goes away for a while and Mr Farmer must milk Belinda.
