I have noticed in various places, when a kid gets hurt and starts crying, sometimes, the grown up in charge rushes to comfort them but does so in strange way. For example if the child has stubbed his toe on the table, they beat the table and say, “Bad table, bad table!” Or if the child has banged their head on the wall, they sternly wag their finger at the wall and say “Bad wall!” Sometimes the child is encouraged to participate in punishing the offending inanimate object.

This is not a disturbing story about the frightening contents of a grave that escaped it's confines, or about any native American rituals. Actually this is about my 18 month old baby and her indomitable spirit.
This is book 29 of The Tania Series. Tania's sister, Sonia, is now 2 years old. Tania loves playing with Sonia. One day, while they are playing catch, Tania has a bad fall and her chin splits. There is blood everywhere and she needs stitches. Can Tania be brave, for Sonia's sake? What does the doctor do, to take her mind off the pain? I hear she learns something about X-rays. Wow! That sounds really exciting. Aren't you curious?
