Squish! The Best Free Present
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Squish! Tricia hugged her stuffed bear. She loved to give hugs. She hugged her puppy...sometimes too hard. She hugged her mom. Tricia loved to give hugs!
 
2     "Tricia, Grandma's here!" called Mom.
 
3     Grandma was a soft, muffin-like woman. She always smelled like cookie dough. She even looked a little bit like a muffin. She had a round, puffy face and black raisin-like eyes. Tricia ran up to Grandma. She was very happy to see her.
 
4     "Hi Grandma," said Tricia.
 
5     "Hi, Sweetie," said Grandma.
 
6     Squish! Tricia hugged Grandma. Grandma was soft and easy to hug. Mom hugged Grandma, too.
 
7     "Happy birthday!" said Mom to Grandma.
 
8     "Thank you, dear. I am happy to spend my day with both of you. Tricia, did you know that I am now 83 years young?" joked Grandma.
 
9     Tricia was surprised. She did not know it was Grandma's birthday. She wanted to give Grandma a present. What could she give her?
