Rose has a cold. And while Mother tucks her in for a nap, she tells Rose about growing up in Jamaica. She describes how she clickety clacked to school on mango heels and made a rag doll because she couldn't afford a store-bought chalk doll. And Rose knows she'll feel much better once she makes her own rag doll, too.
