He Calls Me "Peanut"
By Beth Beutler
1 Facts for this story were obtained from the National Peanut Board.
2 "Hey, Peanut," Grandpa said to Jane. "Come see your grandpa."
3 Jane strolled over to her grandpa. Grandpa swept her up into a big hug. Jane giggled. She liked the feel of Grandpa's beard as he nuzzled her cheek.
4 Ever since she could remember, Grandpa had called Jane "Peanut." It was her special name. She was the only one Grandpa called by that name. Even though she was getting older, she still enjoyed it.
5 "Do you know what this month is, Peanut?"
6 "Yes, Grandpa. It's March!"
7 "Yes, Jane," Grandpa answered with a chuckle. "But it's also National Peanut Month. So it must be a special month for you!"
8 "Yes, Grandpa," Jane replied with her own giggle.
9 "I'm going to take you to a peanut farm, Jane. Then you can learn more about peanuts."
10 "Sounds like fun!" Jane answered. "When are we going?"
11 "We'll go Saturday morning. I'll come get you at 9:00." With another hug, Grandpa let Jane down. She went back to her room while he discussed the details with her mother.
12 Bright and early on Saturday, Grandpa arrived to pick up Jane. They drove about thirty miles to "Peanut Land" Farm. Grandpa parked the truck and he and Jane got out and walked into a building whose doors were shaped like peanuts.
13 "Umm. I love that smell," Grandpa commented, as he took in a whiff of roasted peanuts.
