Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and the Buttered Bread

by Maj Lindman


Quick Overview

Three little Swedish boys want some butter for their bread, but the cow will give no milk because she has no fresh green grass, and there is no grass because the sun has not been shining.


I first discovered the Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr books when I was a little girl back in the early '60s. Though they were written in the '30s, my six-year-old is as charmed by the three little Swedish boys and their adventures as I was many years ago. This particular story tells how the boys, hungry for a snack, are disappointed that there is no butter for their bread. Their mother sends them for a pail of fresh milk from a neighbor, intending to cream it to make butter. But the boys are disappointed again when Aunt Annie tells them her cow, Blossom, has not been giving any milk lately. Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr cannot coax even a few drops from the gentle cow. Her keeper, Uncle Freddy, tells them she is tired of eating dry hay and is longing for fresh, green grass, but a stretch of gray weather has kept the grass from growing. Undaunted, Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr look for a solution. By the time they are rewarded with slices of bread with homemade butter, the reader has learned how cows transform grass into milk and how people transform the milk into butter. I read this tale to my son's class recently and ended the reading by helping the children make butter by agitating whipping cream in a jar. As the yellow butter began to form, one little boy exclaimed, "It's magic!" Maj Lindman's story is magic, too. Size 0.17" H x 9.47" L x 7.73" W, 32 pages
