Buying a Jacket
By Kathleen Redman
  

1     Emily needed a new jacket. It was getting cold, and her old jacket was too small. Her mother told her that they would go shopping on Saturday.
 
2     Bright and early Saturday morning, Emily's mother woke her up. They had breakfast and walked to the mall. They went into Jacket City first.
 
3     Emily found a blue jacket, but it was too small. Her mother found a red jacket, but Emily didn't like the color. They looked at some other jackets, but Emily didn't like any of them.
 
4     Emily's mother took her to another store, Le Jaquette, and they began looking again. Emily found a yellow and brown jacket that she liked. Her mother found a blue jacket that Emily liked, too.
 
5     Emily tried on both jackets, but neither one of them fit. One was too small, and one was too large. Emily put them back on the rack.
 
6     All of a sudden, Emily shouted, "Look, Mom!" She pointed at a girl wearing a blue jacket with white trim. "That's the kind of jacket I want!"
 
7     Emily's mother walked over to the girl. "Excuse me," she said. "My daughter wants a new jacket just like yours. Would you mind telling me where you bought it?"
 
8     "No, ma'am," the girl said. "I bought it at Paul's. The store is at the corner of the mall."
 
9     "Thank you," Emily's mother said.
