       This freebie has nothing to do with the Girl Scouts and the Brownies of today, lol. In "The Brownies at Home" by Palmer Cox (PDF ebook) the brownies are cute little characters by Palmer Cox. I just love 'em. Cute little gnomes similar to the Whos in Whoville, lol.

     This goody would be great for homeschool, classroom or just for family fun. Think literature, geography, seasonal science, etc.

     Here's a cool vintage photo of a song to go with their stories:
