Description
A little girl longs to see beyond the scary sights on the sidewalk and the angry scribbling in the halls of her building. When her teacher writes the word "beautiful" on the blackboard, the girl decides to look for something beautiful in her neighborhood. Her neighbors tell her about their own beautiful things. Miss Delphine serves her a beautiful fried fish sandwich at her diner. At Mr. Lee's beautiful fruit store, he offers her an apple. Old Mr. Sims invites her to touch a smooth stone he always carries. Beautiful means something that when you have it, your heart is happy, the girl thinks. Her search for something beautiful leaves her feeling much happier. She has experienced the beauty of friendship and the power of hope.
