Where did my dragon go? Have you seen my dragon? Can you tell me?

She is not like many other dragons that are mean. In fact, all of the people who meet her want to be her friend!

.

Where did my dragon go? She is very nice. She is so nice, she often lets me ride on her back when we take a trip to the skate park. Sometimes, she even lets me skate down her tail.

.

Where did my dragon go? She is very tall. She is so tall, I can’t even measure her. She is off the charts!

.

Where did my dragon go? She is very pretty. She is so beautiful, I could watch her run, and jump, and float all day.

She can sing a beautiful song, too! I could listen to her song all night long.

.

Where did my dragon go? She can eat so much. Once, I saw her eating a whole truck full of hotdogs! She can drink so much, too.

Once, I saw her order ten drinks at a sports game! Have you ever heard of such a thing?

.

Where did my dragon go? I have not seen her since she caught the wind to float away. I should talk to her on the phone.

.

Ring Ring! Hello, dragon! Where are you? …What? Look at the clock? Today is Monday? You are at school? I need to go to school, too! I will see you soon, dragon!

Who likes to ride cars? We do! Who likes to go fast? We do! Who wants to be the best? We do!

We are two brothers and we want to be the greatest in the whole world!My name is Nick and I’m the old brother.

My car is the best! It is blue all over with a red line around the body. I made every piece of it at my house.

.

If people tell me to stop, I say, “no thanks,” and feel the wind on my head. I have never crashed before and I have always won. That’s because I am the best!

.

My name is Rick and I’m the young brother. My car is the best! It is green all over with a yellow line around the body.

.

I got every piece of it in the mail. I’m still in school and I love all sports, but I like to ride cars the most.

.

I ride in my car through the sun and the rain, in the day or the night, and I never come in second. My friend said I am their favorite in the whole city. That’s because I am the best!

.

Who is really the best, though? Is it Nick or Rick? When Rick is old, they will ride to see the real winner. I can’t wait to find out. Who do you think will come in first?

I am a baby duck. I came from the egg. My mother is great. She has another baby duck like me. We both came in to the world from an egg.

.

We have no house, but we do have a bed. My mother will always put me in that bed at night. I don’t like that because I want to play at night.

.

We always go in the water to play. We play when it is light and when it is night!

The other baby duck and I often play a game where we must find a boat. We can not go near it, but we both must see it.

.

Mother will say to me that the boat might run off with me. I don’t like that!

I don’t want to be away from my mother. She is very kind. So the other baby duck and I don’t go near the boat.

.

But we don’t always find a boat. When we can not find the boat and have been in the water too long, mother will come and we will go eat.

We always have something to eat. When we eat it is night. There is no light from the sun.

.

I would like for it to always be light out. I don’t like when it is not! We can play more when it is light out. I only want to play!

Today is my birthday and I have many gifts from my mother, my father, and my pals.

Do you want to look at them with me? Yes? I thought so! We will take a look at my ten birthday gifts.

.

One birthday gift: a large red ball. I will play with it all day long.

Two birthday gifts: a little blue egg. It is pretty so I will put it where I can see it.

.

Three birthday gifts: a yellow toy car. I wish I had another one so my sister can play with me.

Four birthday gifts: a red toy car. Another one! My sister and I will both have fun.

.

Five birthday gifts: a new night light. Now I can see when the day changes to night.

Six birthday gifts: a fish in a bowl of water. It is funny to see it swim around and around!

.

Seven birthday gifts: a warm white coat and hat. I will put them on when I play in the snow.

Eight birthday gifts: a card game. There are cards of every color!

.

Nine birthday gifts: a box of candy. I could always eat more candy!

Ten Birthday gifts: a birthday card from every person in my class at school. I am happy to have so many great friends!

.

Oh, there are even more gifts? Thank you very much but I do not want any more! Could I give you some of the gifts?

Could you take some off my hands? They are your gifts now, so now we both have some. This is a very good birthday for us both!

featuring the words: Word, Head, Put, Right, Only, Always, About, Also, Even, Every, High, Some, Were

There is a word in my head. I can not put it out of my head. I don’t know it right now.

To only know what it is would be great. I always don’t know this word.

.

My mother and father must know it. They know all there is to know.

.

Could a dog help me find this word? They know a word or two, right?

They do, but… No. I should find this word with no help from the dog.

.

But what about a duck? The duck might also know. No, the duck will walk away from me.

.

I will find this word. I might always know the word should I find it now. What is this word even about?

It is a word every boy and girl should know. It is said with the sun and when you are on top of hill.

.

You can jump with this word. It is something… I have it! High! Some jump high and the sun is also high.

.

Only when it is not night because I can not see the sun when it is night!

Were I to not know this word, my head would run around with the thought of it. But now I know it! I will always know this word.

.

My grandfather is a great man. He has many things to tell me and I have many things to learn.

My grandfather tells me more about the world. He tells me about the things he saw.

He tells me about the people he knows.

.

He tells me about the work he does. The things he tells me are always good because I always learn something new.

.

My grandfather always has a new word to tell me, too. He has many words in his head and I want to know them all!

One day, the list of words I know will be as long as the list my grandfather knows.

.

My grandfather always has something new to show me, too. Once it was art he made when he was on the sea for four years.

Once it was a toy he had when he was just a little boy.

.

Once it was a rock that came from the moon! One day, I will have many things to show like my grandfather does.

.

I know my grandfather is great because my father is great, too! I want to be just like both of them when I grow up.

.

The frog has four big eggs. They are big eggs!

“I want to move the eggs to my farm.” he said. “Might I do that with some help?”

.

A dog came along and the frog saw.

“Dog, please! I want to move some eggs. Can you help me carry them?”

.

“Yes, but I am just a little dog,” said the dog. “We should to find more help.”

A cat came along and the frog saw. “cat, please! I want to move some eggs.

Can you help me carry them?”

.

“Yes, but I am just a little cat,” said the cat. “We should find more help.”

A rabbit came along and the frog saw. “Rabbit, please! I want to move some eggs.

Can you help me carry them?”

“Yes, but I am just a little rabbit,” said the rabbit. “We should find more help.”

“We have a lot of help,” said the frog.

“I have four eggs and there are four of us. One, two, three, four!”

,

“This just might work!” said the dog, cat, and rabbit.

They all had one big egg to help the frog move them to his farm.

To thank them for their help, the frog let them eat the eggs. It was a happy end!

.

Most people play with their dog.

But I don’t have a dog! That is because I have a cow and a pig.

When your house is on a farm, you can play with something like a cow and a pig.

.

I should get a dog. He could like my farm.

The dog can come with me around the farm when I work.

He could help me out around the farm.

.

But what could I name my dog? I could name my dog Duck.

I could name my dog Cat.

The thought of a dog with a name like that is funny to me.

.

I will name my dog Night because I like the night.

I will play a game with my dog.

He will walk around the farm with me and work with me.

.

He can play with the cow and pig, too!

He can run around the farm and find a ball and a toy that I will give him

.

Night will be a very good dog. He will learn to carry the milk from the cow to the house.

I will work with Night often. When I get Night, I will be kind. He will be kind, too.

.

I want to get the dog now! But I must give thought to it.

That is a big change for me. Will a dog like me?

I want to find out! But I will think on it for now.

Featuring the words: Eye, very, water, around, more, large, near, from, long, both

.

I am a little rabbit. I have a black and white coat.

I have a yellow eye and a brown eye. They are very pretty!

.

It is my birthday. I jump down the hill under the sun to get to the water.

.

There I see a fish. I want to play with the fish for my birthday but he can not come out of the water!

.

I jump around more and see a very large, yellow cat.

Will she play with me for my birthday?

.

The yellow cat can see the fish in the water, too.

I jump to the cat, but she did not like me so near.

.

I play under the sun more for it is my birthday.

My mother soon came to get me.

I was away for too long!

.

We both went up the hill. The sun went down a little on our jump up.

.

We went to our house. Soon we ate!

My mother, father, and I ate the apple and milk we have in the house.

It was a very good birthday for me.

Get up! Get up! It is a big day! The sun is up, the world is new, and we must go to school.

.

Father will eat eggs and then he will go to work.

I like eggs. Do you?

.

Mother is putting lunch in our lunch bags, then she will go to work too.

What might our lunch be?

I think there will be an apple in it.

What do you think?

.

After we eat, we walk to school. Here come our pals and they have big grins.

They are glad to see us!

They often make the walk to school very good.

I like walking with our pals! Do you?

.

The school bell rings just as we get into school.

We go to class, give good answers, and have lots of fun.

At lunch, we find what mother put in our lunch bags: we have apples!

Yum! Then, at the end of the day, we walk back to our house.

Mother and father are back from work and they have something good for dinner.

I had a very good day. Did you?
