SAYUR! SAYUR! Vegetables for sale!

"Ibu, why don't you take a day off, too?" Ani suggests.
Ani's mother shakes her head. "I can't, sayang. We need the money."

Ani lives with her mother and aunt in Jakarta. Every day, they push and pull a wooden cart all the way to the big market to buy vegetables, then push and pull it all the way back to sell the vegetables. But one day, Ani's aunt falls ill. Who will help her mother now? She is not strong enough, Ani thinks.

In this heartwarming story, Ani learns what it takes to be a vegetable seller and what being strong really means.
