"The 6 little girls were beaming"

I have a picture in my mind's eye. A rusty car came through the drive through line. The Mom and Grandma were in the front seats. They did not speak English, so I showed them the book while speaking Spanish to explain how the tangram puzzles worked in the book. There were 6 little girls that all seemed to be around 4, 5, or 6 yrs old crammed in the rear bench seat of the car. I handed them 6 books through the window and they were all so excited. I talked to them for a little while before the car had to start moving through the food distribution line again. The 6 little girls were beaming while holding their books. We don't photograph in situations like that though, but hopefully the description of the photo in my mind's eye will brighten the day of all those who participated with this project.
