2 Molly lives in the house down the street with her brother, her mom, and her dad. They are a very happy family. Molly helps her mom in the kitchen. She likes to help her cook. She also helps her dad. Her dad shows her how to fix a car in the garage. But there's something dangerous in both of those places. There are poisons there!
