The Doll That Grew
Hope's doll was made of cloth and stuffed with kernels of dried corn, but although it was not a beautiful doll, Hope loved it dearly.
One day, Hope and her brother James quarreled, and in anger James grabbed Hope's doll. When no one was watching, he buried it deep in the soft ground at the end of the garden. "There," he said to himself, "nobody will ever know what happened to it."
