“Maddie’s New Purse”: a funny story in rhyme of a little girl’s favorite new possession. “Maddie’s New Purse” is the creation of published author Scott Kelley, a married father of four; a child at heart who enjoys writing and illustrating stories for children and pulling the humor from every situation.

Kelley writes, “I took Maddie shopping
for milk and some bread.
Her eyes focused upon it …
Something better instead.
‘Daddy, please, can I have it?’
Needing nothing else worse,
A pink, polyester,
polka-dotted small purse.
I turned ’round to look
at the purse Maddie found.
The one she was claiming,
she now dragged on the ground.
‘Are you sure that you want it?’ I asked, already knowing.
‘Oh yes, Daddy, please.’ Her rosy cheeks glowing.
While wrapped ’round her finger, I responded, ‘That’s fine.’
It’s not like she broke me at $2.99.
But to her it’s worth more
than just three dollar bills.
At home I will watch
to see how quickly it fills.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Scott Kelley’s new book is a fun, heartwarming story of a little girl’s love for dressing up, and a father’s love for his little girl.
