I would like you to meet five
very extraordinary sisters. Jade can twist the river like a rag in
her hands. Em can whittle anything out of wood. Golda is very
handy with string. They say Ruby is half bear and very strong.
And Beryl is the finest stone cutter in the whole state of New Hampshire.
One day, these sisters found a challenge that was just too big for them
-- a tiny baby.
In the mountains of New Hampshire
five mountain sized sisters could do just about ANYTHING but when Beryl,
a very talented stone cutter carved herself a Lil Fella, they couldn’t
handle him. He hollered from noon to midnight and midnight to dawn. The
neighbors in Maine could hear his ruckus. It takes young Nell, who has
lots of brothers and sister, no time at all to calm the Lil Fella. What
is her secret? (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania
