    Are you going to send something to the Friend for the Kindness Garden? I saw you taking Mrs. Craig’s trash out for her again.

    Hmm. Maybe I will. What about you?

    You’ve been helping that new girl at school catch up on her assignments.

    Oh! Yeah.

    Let’s both do it.

    OK! Something you find in a garden, right?

    I’ll find the colored paper.

    I’ll get crayons and markers.

    LATER—

    I did a rose. I love roses. And you did … a potato?

    It was supposed to be a gopher, but he forgot to make the legs!
