What a wonderful story. The one word dialogue gets a little boring after a while, but still, this is a great illustration - I'll never look at a penny the same way again. Good job.
One cent--I love it. Be careful of showing rather than telling, but great story!
Oops, I mean be careful to show rather than tell. ;-) Good story!

I like your penny - I've never heard it before. Grandma was very wise. The exchange between the two boys was very well done. An enjoyable read with a message - good job.

Good job.

I love this! When you submit it somewhere--and I hope you do--change "hesitates" to "hesitated". What a wonderful, wise character you created, and the "one cent" is a perfect object lesson. Great job.

I laughed out loud when I understood the significance of the title. But I loved it! An excellent lesson and I enjoyed reading this very much. Thanks for sharing this.

Excellent 'object lesson'... I might need to borrow it sometime... Loved the grandmother and the interaction between her and Felipe.

I absolutely love this! It's warm, has a message, and is a fun read. That's everything that makes it a winner in my book. Clever title, too.

Charming story! Felipe is a very vivid character with realistic fears and dreams. Good dialouge too.
I love the idea of the penny! I enjoyed reading this from the beginning and was trying to figure out the lesson the penny held. 'One sent' is an awesome reminder.

Loved the title, Glenn. Pennies will hold new significance for me from now on. Good work.
