Delia is in a bit of of a quandry. She is wondering if her earmuffs are a help or a hindrance to every day life.
You will notice the look of concern on her face. It shows she is genuine about her quest to improve upon her situation, and kids react to facial expressions.
This is the pivotal point of the story where the main character must solve a problem. Children like to naturally solve problems by themselves, without parental involvement. It is this independence they look for in their
heroines and heroes in their favourite books.
