The Troublemaker

[For children]

Chris came running out of her brother's room, very red in the face. "Randy's been calling me names again, Mother. This time he called me 'piggy,' and that's not very nice!" Mother, who was sweeping the patio, put down her broom and listened.

"He says I have to play with his car game, but I don't want to. I want to color with his pastels, but he says I just break them, so he won't lend them to me anymore." It just didn't seem fair to Chris. She loved to do artwork so much, and her older brother, Randy, didn't care about it. But right now he was the one who had this big box of colorful chalk for drawing pictures.

"Chris, you and Randy have been getting along so well these days," said Mother. "I hope you're not going to start quarreling again."
