From the inside cover: "Juvenile readers who enjoyed TOMBOY JANIE will welcome another book of her experiences with the birds and animals on the farm in this new book, which is a sequel to the former.
In this new story Janie's Cousin Prue (who is not the tomboy Janie is) comes from the city for summer vacation on the farm and to gain back her strength lost during a winter's illness. Before long Janie learned there was a lot more to living than just discovering new facts concerning the behavior and habits of birds. For Janie did not care much about Cousin Prue's visit and had to learn a number of lessons about human behavior before she could appreciate her city cousin.
With the help of Dad, Janie prayed and fought against her own selfish ways and overcame them so that she and Prue became fast fiends and found they had so very much in common after all. And they found, too, that true happiness came by trying to understand and do things for each other in a truly Christian way."
