Jake and Jackie Learn about Mailing a Package
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "What are you doing, Dad?" Jake had just walked out to the garage, where his father was working with a cardboard box and some bubble wrap.
 
2     "Mom asked me to get this package ready for your cousin Justine," Dad explained.
 
3     "Is that the one having the baby soon?"
 
4     "That's right. Mom cannot go to the baby shower, so she is sending out these gifts."
 
5     Jackie knocked on the side of the garage.
 
6     "Hi there!"
 
7     "Hi, Jackie, what's up?"
 
8     "Nothing much. Just came over to see if you wanted to play catch or something. What are you doing?"
 
9     "Dad's getting a package ready for our cousin who is having a baby."
 
10     "Ooo, how fun!" Jackie skipped over and began to pick up all the cute little items Jake's mom had picked out.
 
11     "How are you going to fit all this in that box?" she asked.
 
12     Jake's dad grinned. "Oh, it will all fit. I've actually picked a box that's a bit larger than I need. That's why I'll use bubble wrap, too."
 
13     "Bubble wrap?" asked Jackie.
 
14     "Yes. See this?" Jake's dad handed them both a roll of plastic filled with lots of bubbles with air in them. Jake and Jackie couldn't resist popping a few.
