Some of the small children may have tried to crawl forward. But they could not get near Jesus. Everyone wanted to see him. It seemed as if everyone was pushing, trying to get nearer. The mothers felt as if it was hopeless. The mother led the children to the disciples. But, the disciples frowned at them. They shook their heads, “Go away! Can’t you see Jesus is busy?
