The Woodshed Theater: Part One
This story is about how imagination can transform something as simple as a woodshed into a magical theater. In Part One of the story, Karl — a woodcutter friend of the family — comes to care for their forest and harvest a few trees for firewood. When he and Daddy decide that one of the trees would actually make perfect lumber, he brings his portable sawmill, and brother and sister get to watch a tree become long wide pieces of wood. After Karl leaves, the whole family starts to work on a woodshed, built out of the wood that has just been cut!
