Our Own Town
Daddy is asked to be on the town planning committee. When he tells Martin and Sylvia about some of the town hall and library renovations, they ask if he can show them what it will look like. Daddy pulls out the clay and toothpicks and begins to create a model, encouraging the children to fashion their own additions!
