Enough and to spare

Illustrated by Annastiina Syväjärvi 2012: Yllinkyllin

Little girl named Kylli is moving. She finds a catalog that has a picture of a pink toy pony. She wants it and she wants it bad.  Her mother is telling her that she can't have everything she wants. But Kylli's Mother's actions tell otherwise: she is complaining about the old couch, wanting  a new one and she has plenty of unnecessary things.

Kylli goes to play outside and finds a new friend and the pink pony is forgotten.

Colorfully illustrated, very educational story about too much stuff and how adults are sending mixed messages to children. After all what is the most important thing in children's lives or for adults for that matter?
