Plot Summary

To sum up the situation, Daddy Jim discovers, after the death of his young wife, that, "men were never made to be mothers to little fellows," so he decides, though it wrenches his heart to part with him, to send Sonny Jim to stay with his Aunt Kate, who has a brood of her own. Sonny's little cousins have a way of teasing, and when Sonny asks them innocently how he can find a new mother for his Daddy Jim, they tell him in all seriousness that new mothers "grow on trees." Sonny Jim sets out to look for a mother that grows on a tree. At length be finds her. The fact that a cow has driven her to take refuge there does not trouble him at all. When Daddy Jim, searching frantically for Sonny, discovers him talking to the girl he is very much surprised, especially as she is up the tree. Sonny asks his father to "Pick his new mother for him." Though at first Daddy Jim is somewhat embarrassed by such a demand, he is aided by the girl, who has a very gracious disposition. Sonny is insistent, so there is nothing for Daddy Jim to do but comply with his wishes. Of course Daddy falls in love with the girl. He could not help falling in love with such a pretty and attractive girl. It becomes a case of love at first sight; only, while Daddy Jim loses his heart to just a girl, the girl loses her heart to a man and a boy all at the same time. She is willing to be taken down from the tree by Daddy Jim, though she has to explain that she really did not grow there. She secretly blesses the cow that chased her so unceremoniously. .She is sorry that the poor cow can never realize to what happiness it was chasing her. Not being able to tell all this to the cow she tells it to Daddy Jim instead, who proves a very willing listener. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
