Six by Six with Socks
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Millie opened her tote bag. She pulled out yarn. She had green yarn. She had blue yarn. She had yellow, pink, and red yarn. There was a small ball of orange yarn too. Oh, that wasn't yarn at all. It was a fruit!
 
2     Next, Millie took knitting needles from her bag. They were very long. She liked how shiny and silver they looked.
 
3     Last, she called for her children. "Amy! Boris! Cece!" she called. "Dino, Ella, Freddy!" She heard the pitter-patter of feet. "Come here, Glory, Hans, and India! Come quickly, Joey, Kiki, and Luis!"
 
4     Millie's children filled up the small room. They looked at their mother and waited.
 
5     Millie looked at her children's feet. Some were bare. Some had on socks with holes. Millie shook her head.
 
6     "Sweet children, you need new socks. I am going to knit you all some socks!" The children cheered. "You may choose the color for your socks," she told them.
 
7     Amy wanted pink socks. Cece and Kiki wanted red socks. The boys wanted blue or green socks. Ella and Glory wanted yellow socks. India asked for rainbow socks!
 
8     "How many socks are you going to knit, Mama?" Luis asked.
 
9     "That's a good question," Millie replied. "Let's count feet to find out!"
