In Milly-Molly-Mandy Gets Up Early, Joyce master stroke was "....looked questioningly at each other and a their own heap of mushrooms, and then they nodded to each other and piled all into the basket". She conveyed the message across to the young readers the satisfaction of giving to those in need.
In Milly-Molly-Mandy Makes a Garden, Joyce brought the fun and satisfaction of sharing to the next level - it could be rewarding! In this story, Billy Blunt combined his outstanding miniature garden with Milly-Molly-Mandy to win the first prize.
In Milly-Molly-Mandy Finds a Nest, Joyce took us on the journey of how Milly-Molly-Mandy built her tree house, which was enjoyed by she and her friends.
In Milly-Molly Mandy Goes for a Picnic, Joyce discreetly demonstrated to us how human damaged the environment and deprived themselves of the joy that brought them to a wishing well in the first place. She then showed that all was not lost if each of us put in our little efforts to preserve our environment for our future enjoyment.
In Milly-Molly-Mandy on Bank Holiday, Billy Blunt demonstrated how fun could be derived by improvisation. In Milly-Molly-Mandy Finds a Train, we first shared the disappointment that the unique train found and enjoyed by Milly-Molly-Mandy and Billy Blunt was taken over by a family. However, Joyce twisted the story around and showed the young readers that a higher level of satisfaction could be gained by being astute through sharing.
In summary, using this short story compilation, Joyce did a marvellous job of introducing the value of sharing!
