P is for play, so says Little Lady. And that's just what she intends to do as she heads off to the swimming hole. Her delightful story is on the back. It reads...

One day Little Lady went swimming. She went under and got her mouth full of water. Then she caught onto her big ball. The ball held her up out of the water except for her legs. Whenever you see her holding onto the ball and with her legs below the "water" line, you know that she is trying to get the water out of her mouth, making a "p-p-p-p" sound. Are you smart enough to make that sound without spitting? We shall see. Play you are Little Lady in the water. (To distinguish later when they meet "q", show that the girl in "p" comes first and the ball part next, while in "q" the bal part comes first.)

So cute!
