Today each of the children will take home freshly picked strawberries, spinach and carrots.
Mama K has only one rule. "Share it fair!" The children know they must share the treats equally, so they all get the same amount.
"I think I will cut two slices, like this. Now we have three slices, all the same!" Maya shows them.
"That's not fair!" shout Maya and Doobie together.
"Why don't you try Doobie?" smirks Duksie. "I bet you can't do it!"
On Sundays he helps his dad to wash the truck, and to polish the shiny badge. "I've got it! I've got it! I know how to do it," yells Doobie.
"Well done Doobie, three equal slices! You shared fairly, I'm proud of you all. Now cut the cake and drink your juice. It's time to go home."
He can't wait to tell his dad how the badge on the truck helped him to solve a very tricky problem!
