I Resolve   

READER #1:  
The first day of January begins a new year.


READER #2:  
That's the day people make a list of resolutions.


READER #3:  
What's a resolution?


READER #4:  
A resolution is like a promise to yourself.


READER #5:  
A resolution tells what you plan to do in the new year.


READER #6:  
You can make as few or as many resolutions as you want!


READER #1:  
Adults make resolutions all the time.


READER #2:  
They also break resolutions all the time!


READER #3:  
Why do they make resolutions if they are just going to break them?


READER #4:  
It's hard to say.


READER #5:  
They don't plan to break them; it just happens.


READER #6:  
Sometimes even promises to ourselves are hard to keep!


READER #1:  
Even children can make a New Year's resolution.


READER #2:  
Anybody can make a promise to themselves!


READER #3:  
Do children our age really make resolutions?


READER #4:  
I never heard of such a thing!


READER #5:  
I think it's a really good idea!


READER #6:  
Let's start now!


READER #1:  
For my first resolution, I resolve to read more books.


READER #2:  
Hey, that sounds like a good one!


READER #3:  
But you like to read! Isn't that cheating?


READER #4:  
Don't ask me.


READER #5:  
It's not possible to cheat.


READER #6:  
You are allowed to make easy promises to yourself.


READER #1:  
Who is going to make the next resolution?


READER #2:  
I will. I resolve to study more and get better grades.

That doesn't sound like a fun resolution.


READER #4:  
It's still a good one.


READER #5:  
I resolve to eat more candy!


READER #6:  
I resolve to eat more pizza!

No, adults are more likely to promise to diet and exercise more.

Can I resolve to do at least one good deed every week?


READER #4:  
Aw, that's sweet.


READER #5:  
Maybe I'll resolve to share my candy every week.


READER #6:  
Then you can share your cavities as well!


READER #1:  
Let's see how many resolutions we have so far.


READER #2:  
I only count five.

Aren't there six of us?

Maybe you miscounted.

No, there are six readers and only five resolutions.
