Minna and her dad went on the wagon. She was cold so her dad put her in a burlap feed sack.
Minna's dad told Minna that she should go to school but Minna said that she couldn't because she had to help her mom with quilts. Minna wanted to go to school but she wanted to help her mom.
We can make you a coat out of scraps
Minna's father died so at the funeral everyone wore black. Minna was confused her father loved the colours of the sunset. Minna only had one friend that was her doll Clemmie she made her out of rag scraps.
Instead of just Minna helping her mom the quilting mothers help so Minna can go to school.
Minna went to the quilting mothers and said that she can't go to school because she didn't have a coat. The quilting mothers said that she make her a coat out of some scraps.
I can't go to school because she didn't have a coat.
Minna came home every day to see if her coat was ready.
