A Medal for Molly by Jan Weeks
Molly and her dad are driving home from Grandma's house. Molly falls asleep but wakes up when the car crashes. She is shaken, but Dad is trapped and passes out. Molly goes for help. She trudges though the rainy night and when dawn breaks, she sees a farmhouse. A woman takes Molly inside and calls an ambulance. She gives Molly dry clothes and a warm drink before they return to Molly's father. The ambulance is already there. A police officer tells Molly that she deserves a medal for bravery. But Molly is just glad that Dad is going to be alright.
