Grandpa's Sailboat
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Ian loved Grandma. She always had treats for him. He loved Grandpa, too. They had fun.
 
2     Ian went to their house after school every day. Grandma gave him something to eat. Grandpa had fun things for them to do.
 
3     Grandpa loved boats. Once he had sailed boats. Now he could not. Ian knew it sometimes made him sad.
 
4     One day Grandpa had a new project. Ian wondered what it was.
 
5     "Just wait and see," was all Grandpa would say.
 
6     Grandpa had a block of wood. He cut some off with his saw. Then he put it in a metal holder. He turned the handle to make it hold tight.
 
7     "What is that, Grandpa?" asked Ian as he chewed a cookie.
 
8     "That is a vice," said Grandpa. "It holds things still. It makes carving easier."
 
9     Grandpa got out a draw knife. He pulled it over the block. Shavings chipped off the wood.
 
10     "That looks kind of like a boat," said Ian.
