Tammy's Sunshine
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Tammy liked to be in the garden. She liked to pull weeds. She liked to pick things, too.
 
2     Last week, Tammy picked beans. She helped Mom get them ready for supper. They were very good.
 
3     The corn was tall, taller than Tammy. It was almost ready. The ears were getting fat. The silks were turning brown.
 
4     Tammy began counting the ears. She heard a strange sound. She stopped and listened. It sounded like a kitten.
 
5     The little girl got down on her knees. She looked down the row. At first, she saw nothing. Then a patch of sunshine moved. Tammy looked again. It was not sunshine, but a yellow kitten.
 
6     Tammy spoke in a soft, high voice. "Here, kitty, kitty."
 
7     The kitten mewed but would not come.
 
8     "Poor little kitty," said Tammy gently. "Maybe you want something to eat."
 
9     Tammy slowly backed away from the kitten. Once she was out of the garden, she ran to the house.
