Anna On the Farm

Cover of book Anna On the Farm
Categories: Fiction
CHARLIE IS sitting on his front steps, fanning his face with a comic book. Anna skips across the street to tell him her news.
"Guess what? Guess what?" Too excited to stand still, Anna hops back and
...forth from one foot to the other, waiting for Charlie to guess.
"What?" Charlie stares at her, his face puzzled. Behind him, his mother rocks a baby in her arms, trying to hush its cries. His little brothers race up and down the stairs. His older sister runs after them, begging them to hush before Papa gets cross and spanks them.
"I'm going to my Uncle George's farm tomorrow!" Anna cries. "I get to ride the train all by myself and stay for a whole week! I can wade in the pond and play in the barn, I can—" Charlie fans his face harder. "Lucky you," he mutters.
Anna stops hopping and draws in her breath. Oh, no. Without meaning to, she's made Charlie feel just as bad as she felt when Rosa and Beatrice bragged about the ocean and the mountains. "I wish you were going, too," she tells him quickly.
