542. Easter joy!

542easter

It was the Easter season. Young Joel was seven. He had three friends who lived nearby.

“Dear me,” said Joel’s mother. “I seem to be out of carrots, just when I need some to prepare for dinner. Run down to the grocery store, Joel, and buy four carrots.”

She gave Joel some money.

Now the grocery store owner, for Easter, gave away a free Easter egg with every purchase. Joel didn’t go straight to the shop; he went to gather his three friends.

Each bought a carrot.
