Ordinary Mary's Extraordinary Deed

Can one child's good deed change the world?

It can when she’s Ordinary Mary—an ordinary girl from an ordinary school, on her way to her ordinary house—who stumbles upon ordinary blueberries. When she decides to pick them for her neighbor, Mrs. Bishop, she starts a chain reaction that multiplies around the world. Mrs. Bishop makes blueberry muffins and gives them to her paperboy and four others—one of whom is Mr. Stevens, who then helps five different people with their luggage—one of whom is Maria, who then helps five people—including a man named Joseph who didn’t have enough money for his groceries—and so on, until the deed comes back to Mary.

It’s a feel-good story that inspires and celebrates a world full of ordinary deeds!

Emily Pearson is the co-author of Fuzzy Red Bathrobe: Questions from the Heart for Mothers and Daughters. Emily and her two children live in Salt Lake City, Utah. This is her first children’s book.

My daughter's favorite
Every night when I ask my four year old daughter to pick a book to read, this is the book she chooses 4 out of 5 times.  She absolutely loves the pictures and story and what better message could I pass along to my daughter than what this story is about.  She loves that Mary helps so many.  Definitely a great book to give as gifts and a must have for your child's library at home.

My Go-To Gift
I love to give books to people as gifts and everyone loves a good children's book.  This one happens to be one of my favorites and my go-to gift book.  The illustrations are darling and I love the pay-it-forward message the book portrays.  Doing a few small things can change the world.
