The Sweetest House
By Kathleen W. Redman
1 Phil's house was finished. He had worked on it for a whole week.
2 His mother helped him bake the walls and roof.
3 His father helped him put the walls together.
4 His big sister helped him put on the roof.
5 His little brother helped him build a chimney.
6 Everyone helped him except his little sister. She was too little to help.
7 His mother went to the store. She bought some ice cream cones. Phil put green icing on the cones. He made them look like trees. He put them in front of the house.
8 His father went to the store. He bought some gum. The gum had red stripes on it. Phil cut the pieces of gum into smaller pieces. He put the pieces all over the roof. It looked like a real roof then.
9 His big sister went to the store. She bought some sugar cubes. Phil used the sugar cubes to make a sidewalk. The sidewalk went right up to the house.
