This girl named Lizzie was going to have a doll tea party with her friend, but she had to help her grandmother with the wash. She sorted out all the clothes – she knew her grandfather’s underwear were in there somewhere but her grandmother wouldn’t let her see them! They had boiling water in a big kettle, but it took both of them to put in on the bench. After the clothes came out of the kettle, they went through the wringer and they came out as flat as flapjacks! Then Lizzie and her grandmother hung up the whites on a line and put the other clothes on bushes and the grass and fences. Lizzie felt great. Grandmother gave Lizzie some of her buttermilk (her doll didn’t like it) and then Lizzie got a surprise! Her friend Lucie had come over to have a doll tea party and that was how Lizzie’s grandmother rewarded her for helping with the wash.
I like this story because I like how Lizzie’s grandmother was so nice and gave her a reward for helping. I like that Lizzie felt good for helping, even though it wasn’t what she wanted to do at first.
