            Summary
 Growing up in a house full of women,
Justin feels frustrated by his mother
and sisters, who are always after him
to help with the household chores. He
thinks doing dishes and making beds
is "women's work." When Justin
complains to his grandfather,
Grandpa invites Justin home with
him. With no women to cook and
clean and make the beds, Justin
discovers that it doesn't matter who
does the work - and that it's not so
hard after all.

   Comprehension Skill: Setting

the plot of a story. At other times, the
setting is only background.

you see, hear, feel, and smell what it is
like to be there.

 clothes were so creased and wrinkled.
