Minerva Louise at the Fair

"Minerva Louise at the Fair" by Janet Morgan Stoeke

Minerva Louise was surprised when she heard the fireworks at the fair because she didn't know what they were.

"She stared up at the stars and listened to the crickets long after everyone else was asleep. BOOM! That's not a cricket. BOOM! What is it? BOOM! It'd better go see what's happening. Look at that! The stars are coming down from the sky!"

She didn't understand the stuffed rooster prizes hanging above a game booth or the ferris wheel or the merry-go-round.
