Nothing to Do
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Dylan did not know what to do. He was tired of reading. He did not want to watch television.
 
2     "Mom, what can I do?" he asked his mother.
 
3     "Walk to the park," she said. "You can find something to do there."
 
4     Dylan started to walk. Then he saw his friend Josh. Dylan ran to catch up.
 
5     "Josh! Josh!" he said. "Wait for me."
 
6     Josh stopped and waited for Dylan. Then they ran to the park.
 
7     There were many children at the park. One boy tossed a ball to his friend. The boy threw it back to him. Some children were playing a funny game. Each one jumped over the others. Four girls were skipping rope. One girl threw a Frisbee. Her friend had to leap very high to catch it. Some people were jogging.
 
8     "What do you want to do?" Josh asked.
