Pay It Forward
One morning everyone is surprised to see Mr. Brown's son arrive ready to mow the lawn for them. He says that he wanted to do something nice for them because they did something nice for the Browns. Brother and sister are curious about this and Daddy explains that sometimes instead of paying someone back for a kindness, they pay it forward to someone else. Then Martin and Sylvia think of things they can do to "pay it forward."
