"After a little while, Vera began to feel hungry. She could tell it was dinner time by the way the sun looked in the sky. She wondered if her family was missing her now.

After making straight As on her first report card, proud little Vera hurries all the way home from school to show her family. But when she gets there, everyone seems too busy to notice her good grades. Feeling sad and a bit angry, Vera packs some socks and underpants in a big red handkerchief and runs away. But later, when she returns home, Vera discovers how much everyone had worried about her."

In this reassuring story, Vera realizes just how special she is and, most importantly, that "when you do well, you are doing well for yourself.
