Second graders are reading The Josefina Story Quilt by Eleanor Coerr. This historical fiction book is about a family of pioneers who head out for California in the 1850s. Faith, the main character, wants to bring her hen, Josefina, on the trip west even though Pa says she is useless. He said that Josefina is too old to lay eggs and too tough to eat!
Ma gave Pa a special look, and then Pa changed his mind. Pa did say that if Josefina caused any trouble she'd have to go.
