110 "Woodshed Theater Part Two"

In Part Two of the story, Sylvia can't wait to produce a play in the new Woodshed Theater, but Daddy has to finish it first! While the rest of the family builds, Sylvia imagines and plans the perfect production. With her determination and enthusiasm, she manages to inspire not only her own family, but also the neighbors and some friends in town! In Part Two we wonder:

will the woodshed be complete in time?

 

 

You'll be delighted by the answer.

This two-part story is about how imagination can transform something as simple as a woodshed

 

into a magical theater.  In Part One of the story, Karl – a woodcutter friend of the family – comes to care for their forest and harvest a few trees for firewood. When Karl and Daddy decide that one of the trees would actually make perfect lumber, he brings his portable sawmill, and brother and sister get to watch a tree become long wide pieces of wood. After Karl leaves, the whole family starts to work on a woodshed, built out of the freshly-cut wood!

Peepski is confused. He doesn’t feel like his best friends who are hen chicks, but he also doesn’t feel like a rooster like his father, either. When he finally admits his feelings to his father, he is surprised (and delighted) in the response.

Martin and Sylvia gauge the seasons less by the calendar, and more by the natural world. The sure sign that summer has begun is that the crayfish appear in the brook along the back of the yard.  The two enjoy a summer day figuring out how to catch these wonderful, watery creatures!

It is Independence Day!  Martin wants to watch the fireworks from the central Green in town rather than from their bedroom windows like in previous years.  But Sylvia is worried about leaving their old dog Billbill, who is terrified of the sound of fireworks. Through cleverness and ingenuity, Martin and Sylvia solve this impasse and have a rather memorable 4th of July.

Summer is filled with such excitement!  There is so much fun to be had on the long, sunny days.  When Martin and Sylvia’s Uncle Phil comes for a visit, the children are particularly excited – as they love his magical stories and games.  But oh, how hard it is to go to bed at the end of a wonderful summer day!  It takes a special gift — one that only summer offers — to help Martin and Sylvia settle down for a summer’s sleep.

A young racehorse seems destined for greatness -- and boy is she fast! But as soon as she hits the racetrack, her force of motion dwindles. It takes an enlightened trainer, a surprising jockey, and a magic ingredient for this young horse to show her gifts in the ultra-competitive world of horse racing. And that magic ingredient? Play.
