Rollo at Work
by Jacob Abbott
The third volume in the Rollo Series, a lively collection of stories about Rollo and his every day adventures in growing up in 19th century rural America, that have delighted generations of children. Told by his father that he is not big enough to work, five year old Rollo is determined to prove that he can. Starting off with unsuccessful efforts in picking up wood chips and stacking kindling in the shed, he eventually does learn how to work, and shows it by constructing a solid pathway over the muddy spot in the road. Under the gentle guidance of his parents, Rollo learns more about work with each new activity around the farm. Tending his gardens teaches him the difference between work and play. While gathering apples with the boys he experiences firsthand how much more smoothly the work goes when one person is in charge. Finally, on the way to town to spend his hard-earned money, Rollo hears a story from his mother that leads him to ponder his purchases much more carefully than he otherwise would have.  Ages 7-10
