In the novel, Yotsuba learns to talk to people at a great amount of distance using cups attached to a string or two. Plus, Yotsuba gets a fever and rests all day from not sleeping early enough to go to the ranch. When she got to go to the ranch for the first time, she realized how hard it is to work on the ranch. This novel is great because she learns that being on the ranch is fun but yet hard work because you have to take care of everything.
