Drift Off - Bedtime Stories
Maida's Little Shop (Chapter 1)
Show Notes

For tonight's bedtime storytelling, I will be reading Chapter 1 from Volume 1 of  the Maida Book Series called  Maida’s Little Shop. This gentle story by Inez Haynes Irwin was published in 1909 and is about a sweet little girl named Maida who is sickly and lame. Her father is well known to be one of the most wealthiest men in America. He decides to buy her a little shop in Charlestown Massachusetts, to give her a purpose and to help restore her health. However, he has one condition, that she not tell anyone who she is or who her father is. And for the first time in her life...Maida makes wonderful new friends because they think she is just an ordinary girl.  

I hope you enjoy this charming bedtime story and I wish you a peaceful night's rest!
Sweet dreamzzz....
