MARGARET AND THE BOOK
Margaret was different than her friends Daisy and Bossy, not because she wore glasses, not because she wore necklaces in the evening, NOT because she sang and NOT because she read books.
It was because every time she went into the field with all the other cows , and stood amongst the grasses , the clovers and the buttercups, her eyes would begin to water and she before long would be sneezing and sneezing and sneezing some more.
One day she went to the doctor. “It’s hay fever “, he said. “You are allergic to grass. She put Margaret on a strict diet of rolled oats and cabbage.
Margaret was sad. She got a book off the shelf and started to read out loud.
The farmer heard Margaret and called to his children. They rang their friends and told them and before long the farmer couldn’t move in order to go out on the farm to work.
So from then on and for ever more , Margaret reads her in stories in the library.
