Mini, the smallest pilgrim in the village, has always been good at looking for things she could to do to help with the village chores. One day, Mini decides to be extra helpful. She goes to different people in the village to see what she can help with: her brother making a woodpile, her sister mending some clothes, her mother making some bread, the village boys fishing in the river. But everyone says that Mini is too little to help. Mini is determined to find something special she can do. On her way back home, she decides to pick some berries for her family. Finally, the opportunity for Mini to do something special comes when she meets and befriends a little Native American girl the same size as her.
