Wendy's World - Monuments
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Wendy was very happy. She and her parents were on vacation. They were at Disney World in Florida. There was something magic about being in the Magic Kingdom.
 
2     She was a little sad that she could not share what she saw with her best friends. Tim and Tess were still at home. She would tell them all about her adventures when she returned home. She decided to write in a journal each day. That would help her remember what she wanted to tell Tim and Tess.
 
3     Today was going to be a very special day. Wendy was going to meet her mother's favorite cousin, Corky. Corky worked in Disney World. She was called an Imagineer. She worked in the Hall of Presidents. Corky had arranged for Wendy and her parents to visit the Hall of Presidents. It was not open to the public. It was closed for repairs. Wendy would be able to see what goes on behind the scenes. Not many people got to do that.
 
4     Corky was fun. Wendy could tell she loved her work. "I am so glad you could see my work, Wendy," said Corky. "This exhibit is a monument to our presidents."
 
5     "A monument?" asked Wendy. "I thought a monument was a statue or a big building."
 
6     "There are monuments like that," answered Corky. "The Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., are famous monuments."
 
7     "Yes," said Wendy, "I have seen them in my school books."
 
8     "Some people build living monuments," continued Corky. "A town might plant a rose garden as a monument to someone in the town."
 
9     "Oh," said Wendy, "that would be pretty."
