Garon's Garage Sale
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     One Saturday morning, Garon began to clean his room. He put some of the toys he had outgrown in a box. He thought about the things in his room he no longer used. He decided to put clothes that were too small for him in a box, too. Garon looked under his bed. He saw some old games he hadn't played for a long time. He put the games in another box. His mother noticed him heading towards the garage with his boxes.
 
2     "Where are you going with those boxes?" asked his mother. Garon said he was cleaning out his room and no longer needed these things.
 
3     "The garage is already full of boxes. I can't park my car in the garage anymore," she complained.
 
4     "Why not have a garage sale?" suggested Garon. "Then we could get rid of the boxes of stuff and make some money, too."
 
5     "That's a great idea, Garon," said his mother, "but there are a lot of boxes out there. It would take an entire weekend to sort through everything. It would also take some time to make signs and set up tables. I don't have the time to put on a garage sale."
 
6     "Do you think I could do it?" asked Garon. "I'm almost twelve. It might take me a while, but I could try."
 
7     "Let's ask Dad," she said.
 
8     Garon's dad thought having a garage sale would be a great experience for Garon. He said he might have a few items that could go in the garage sale, too.
 
9     "If you can pull this off, you can keep whatever you make, Garon. We will only help you if you aren't sure whether something should be sold," said his dad.
