Storyline

With the money they raised, the Sunday school class decides to buy a new Bible for Reverend Alden's birthday. Mary is entrusted with the total revenue: $1.67, and the new Bible they'd like to buy costs $3.00. Laura has an idea how they can quickly turn their $1.67 into $3.00: by spending the money on holistic medicines and selling them at 25 cents a bottle. They'd raise $3.00 in no time. However, their first attempts at pedaling the medicine prove unsuccessful. As the reverend's birthday draws ever closer, Mary and Laura, having sold no medicine, are faced with a huge dilemma. Will they fess up and admit to Reverend Alden that they have no gift to bring, or have they, in a way, already given him a much more valuable gift? Written by <Explorerds6789>

its the reverend Aldens birthday!
3 October 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

So the sundayschool children have collected money over a period of time to buy Reverend Robert Alden a nice present for his birthday!! At the end of the collection they decide that Mary should be the one to pick out a present. So she quickly decide that they should give him a new Bible since his old one is falling apart. As the olesons are Nellie and Willie doent want to help bc their mother says that their different than the other children.(You can just shake heads) At home Mary look up bibles in the catalog and finds one for $1,50c.With still 12c to spear. But Laura finds a bible which has golden letters of the the name of the person you're given it too in printed in the front and the back. But its cost $3. Mary tells Laura that they don't have that money. So "smart" Laura sees an ad in the catalog. That if you order this medicine cabinet and sell all of it they could double their money. So the idea pops in to laura's head that if they order this medicines for $1,50c they could make $3 and buy that grand Bible. Mary is totally against it and Tells Laura that its not their money. But later gives in of Laura's nagging. They order the medicine. But once they have it.......... Check this episode out and see what happens. Thiers a good lesson in this one! Memorable lines: Laura:"Nellie and Willie why don't you give money same as the other children?" Nellie:"my mother says that were different than the other children" Laura"I guess she's right" 2nd one! Laura:whe should not have ordered this" Mary;"well you told me too" Laura:"well your older you should have not listen to me" (facepalm)(always excuses its hiler) This episode is good but not outstanding.

Now continue to season2 episode 12
