Welcome! The tour is about to begin. First stop is the cornfield. It must be time to pick the corn crop. The cow pasture is near the cornfield. The cows eat grass and drink water. This helps them produce milk. A flock of sheep grazes in their pasture. The sheep have coats of soft wool. At the barn, the pigs are squealing at a dog that’s bothering them. The henhouse is the last stop on the tour. The farmer is collecting the eggs. It’s time to say goodbye.

Mandi thought everyone had forgotten her birthday. This morning at the breakfast table, no one had even wished her a "Happy Birthday!" No one mentioned it all day long--not even her mother, and Mom never forgot anything.

She had noticed her sisters whispering at lunch. She thought that was kind of rude! Her mom sent her to the store for a loaf of bread in the middle of the afternoon. Mandi didn't know why she had to go. Why couldn't her sister Sarah go? Sarah was older. And since when was bread such an emergency?

She grumbled to herself all the way to the store and back. It was bad enough everyone had forgotten her birthday, she also had to run everyone's errands! As she dragged herself into the kitchen, she was startled to hear, "SURPRISE!"

Mr. Craig was at the park with his family. He was the family cook and stood at the grill cooking the hot dogs while everyone else swam in the pool. The little boy had been standing by the tree for a few minutes before Mr. Craig really noticed him.

"Do you need any help?" the boy asked.

“No, I think I've got it under control!"

Mr. Craig chuckled. Then he noticed the boy's dirty t-shirt and ragged pants. "I might need some help eating all of these hot dogs though," Mr. Craig said. "I think I may have cooked too many. Would you like one?"

"Okay," the boy said. "I wouldn't want you to have too many."
