The Pet Shop
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     The sun had come up. Birds sang in the trees. Hunter and Sally went down the street. Their mother was with them. She had said they could get a pet.
 
2     "I cannot wait to see the pets!" Sally said. She wanted a cat. Hunter wanted a frog or a snake.
 
3     Mom said, "We shall see."
 
4     They went into the pet shop.
 
5     Hunter said, "Look! This bird is on a swing! It is very pretty."
 
6     "Look at the mice asleep in the straw," Sally said. "There are so many of them!"
 
7     The kids saw kittens, puppies, and birds. They saw crabs, frogs, and fish. There were snakes and hamsters.
 
8     "That bunny made a hole to hide in," Sally said. It peeked out from the straw.
 
9     "Look at those two cats," said Hunter. Their cage was on the floor. The long, skinny, brown cats were asleep on each other.
