The last three monks at a monastery have their lives enriched by the presence of children flying kites outside their walls.
The reader looks for Josie, a little girl who is hiding somewhere in her house or yard.
A child considers how Grandmother's lap is just right for those times when lightning is coming in the window or the cat is missing.
A child considers how Grandfather is the perfect person to spend time with because he is never in a hurry.
No one except Grandmother seems to understand what it is to be the smallest in the family.
