Skipping Christmas 10/14/15
I think "no don't leave" is important because it tells you that the sad and mom are very sad that she's leaving. Also they want her to stay for the holidays and they don't want her gone for a year but they now that's what she wants to do. It's cool because it adds a little action to the book when you are reading it also makes you want to read more. The point it that the author wants us to know that the parents are sad and they want her to stay for the holidays.
