A Bicycle for Jake
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     Jake was nine years old. Tomorrow he would be ten. His birthday was on November 12. Jake wanted a bicycle for his birthday. His father had said he could have one when he was ten.
 
2     Jake had waited almost a year. In December, it was Christmas. There were lots of gifts for Jake, but no bicycle. Christmas was fun, but Jake was in a hurry for a bicycle.
 
3     In January, Jake and his father made snowmen. They made snow forts. They had a snowball battle. It was fun, but Jake was in a hurry for a bicycle.
 
4     In February, Jake and his father bought some flowers for Jake's mother. It was Valentine's Day. Jake thought it was silly. He was in a hurry for a bicycle.
 
5     It rained a lot in March. On March 17, Jake wore green to school. It was St. Patrick's Day, and he didn't want to get pinched. He was in a hurry for a bicycle.
 
6     In April, the weather got warmer and the flowers started to bloom. Jake and his little sister colored eggs. Jake hid them for his little sister to find. Easter was nice, but Jake was in a hurry for a bicycle.
