One time Tony's mother and father bought a house in the country. It was a small house and very broken, but Tony's father liked it because there was green grass everywhere and sweet water and good air that you could breathe all day long.
"Smell the air!" Tony's father would say, and everyone woul stop what they were doing and breathe in and out.
There was a lot of work to do in the country. Painting work and cleaning work and hanging up curtains and taking down spiderwebs and hammering and nailing and things like that.
"Let me help," Tony said to his father. "Let me hammer."
"No, you are too small," Tony's father answered. "You would hit yourself with the hammer, and then you would cry, and we would have to stop working and hold you for a little while, so that's not a good idea."
