My Brother Is in a Wheelchair!
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Lori and Drew were sister and brother. Lori was seven. Drew was five. They liked to draw pictures. They liked to watch TV. They liked to play checkers with each other. Like all brothers and sisters, sometimes they played with other kids.
 
2     Today Lori was having three new friends at her house. They were from her class at school.
 
3     Lori opened the door when she saw Pat.
 
4     "Hello!" Lori said.
 
5     "Hello!" Pat said back. Pat ran across the yard. She stopped. "What is this?" Pat asked. Pat was looking at the front of Lori's house. There were no stairs to get to the front door. There was a ramp instead.
 
6     "That's a ramp," Lori said.
 
7     "I've never seen one on someone's house before," Pat said. "Why do you have one?"
 
8     Lori said, "Drew has to get in the house with it."
 
9     "Why can't he just walk up the stairs like me?" Pat asked.
