"Annabelle Bernadette Clementine Dodd
Was a good little girl, though decidedly odd,
Belle lived every day as if she were grown--
She thought she could do everything all on her own."

"Belle's mother was busy -- too busy to play,
And her father was much too often away.
So, hour after hour, day after day,
Belle followed Bea, with Bea leading away."

This is a lovely tale of a young girl who spends most of her time with the housekeeper/nanny.  After the daily chores are completed, they always find time to go to the beach.
