Tanya's Reunion

Tanya's Reunion by Valerie Flournoy

 Summary:  Tanya's grandma is going to the family farm early to help plan the family reunion.  She asks Tanya to go with her.   Tanya is excited to see the farm and spend time with Grandma.  When they get there, the farm is run-down and Tanya feels lonely because Grandma is busy getting things ready.  One day Grandma talks to Tanya about how special the farm is to her and the rest of the family, and how Tanya is an important part of the family.  Tanya's attitude changes, and she starts helping out and enjoying her visit.
