A Little House Christmas
Candy Tree


When all the trading was done, the storekeeper gave Mary and Laura each a piece of candy...Both pieces of candy were white, and flat and thin and heart-shaped. There was printing on them, in red letters. Ma read it for them. Mary's said:


Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you.


Laura's said only:
Sweets to the sweet.

The pieces of candy were exactly the same size. Laura's printing was larger than Mary's.
