KS1 English: Jack and the Beanstalk - Episode 2

There are no other children of Jack's age in the village, so Daisy the cow is his best friend.

Jack sits down to milk Daisy. Once upon a time she had given a full pail. But now she can only give two drops.

Jack's mother decides that they must sell Daisy - only then will they have some money to buy food.
