Quietly, Genevieve surveyed the piles of boxes just waiting to be opened.
"Gen, can you cover afternoon story hour for me? I've got to get these books accounted for and on the shelves!"
Genevieve's mother gave her a smile.
"That's okay, Mom, I'll get the books taken care of."
"Thanks, Gen," her mother said, hurrying off to prepare for the children's story hour.
Genevieve reached for the scissors, and began opening the first box.
