Helping a Little
By Phyllis Naegeli
  

1     Emma sat and watched the news with her parents. Tears filled her eyes as images of the disaster in Asia flashed across the screen.
 
2     "Oh, Mom," Emma said with a sob.
 
3     Mom put her arm around Emma to console her. "It is terrible," said Mom as she stared at the television.
 
4     Suddenly, Emma sat up straight. "Lastri!"
 
5     Mom looked at Emma with concern. "Who is Lastri?"
 
6     Emma jumped off the couch and faced her parents. "Lastri is my friend from school. She moved here from Indonesia last year. I have to call her!"
 
7     "I think that would be a good idea," said Mom.
 
8     Dad picked up the remote and turned off the television. "Why don't you call from the office," he suggested.
 
9     In the office, Dad pulled the phone book out of a drawer. "What is Lastri's last name?"
