About a girl who hears about a party, but doesnt get invited. She worries and waits for an invitation untill the end where it wasnt the party she thought it was.
This book is about a little girl name Minnie. Minnie over heard someone saying one of her friends by the name of Charles were having a party. Minnie realized that she hadn't heard anything about a party and she wondered why. She ran to the mailbox everyday after school, but there was no invitation. She tried to get Charles attention everyday, but she would always get picked on for nagging. As Saturday approached, Minnie still didn't receive anything. Saturday morning Minnie's friend called to see if she wanted to come out in play with a few of her other friends, she thought it would be better than sitting inside feeling sad. She was stilled worried about not being invited, but as she was standing in line waiting for her turn she heard something in the bushes. Her friend Charles popped out the bushes and she was surprised. She told him she thought he was at his party. He explained to her that it was his little sister party and he would rather play with his friends than be at her party. Minnie became excited and put a smile on her face.
Great lesson in teaching your kids to get all the facts before reacting.
