Open the Door

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Peter had turned the little knob when he went into the room and so had locked the door behind him. When he wanted to open the door again, he wasn't able to do so. Peter was five years old, and his little fingers couldn't turn the small handle that would unlock the door. He tried and he tried, and then called out to his mother:

"Mummy, will you please open the door for me?"

"I can't open the door from this side, Peter," she said. "You will have to do it yourself from your side."
