Mrs. Flowers would bake cookies whenever Marguerite came to visit.

She gives her cookies and challenges Marguerite to her "lessons of living." Before Marguerite leaves, Ms. flowers hands her a book of poetry and asks her to recite it the next time she visits.

Mrs. Flowers also gave her books to read and described the importance of caring for them....... meaning that if they became damaged in anyway, “death would be too kind and brief” a punishment. (Page 36)

Marguerite read these books aloud during their visits because Ms. Flowers believed they would help her with her speaking.
