    The history of The Brownie Story' has evolved over the years. Today we tell a story of two little girls who play from morning 'til night. Their grandmother tells them a story about the brownies, magical little people who come and do chores when no one is looking. The girls go off into the woods in search of the brownies, magical little people who come and do chores when no one is looking. The girls go off into the woods in search of the brownies to do their chores. They meet the wise Old Owl and ask him where to find the helpful brownies. The owl takes them to the pond to look for the brownies. We need more Brownies. Second year girls - can you take this Brownie light and go into the forest to look for others
