1 "I don't like beans," Chester Chipmunk said. "I don't care if they are good for me. They just don't taste good."
2 "That's too bad," said Riley Rabbit. "Beans are SO good for you!"
3 "Who cares?" Chester snapped back. "What good is it to eat things you don't like?"
4 Riley Rabbit thought about that. He had to admit to himself that it would be hard to eat things he didn't like. He just naturally liked all sorts of vegetables, especially green ones.
5 "Chester, do you like to be able to run fast?"
6 "Of course!" said Chester. "I have to keep away from that ugly cat."
7 "Do you want to be strong and flexible?"
8 "Yes! Why are you asking me this stuff?"
9 "Well, if you eat healthy and natural foods like vegetables and beans, your body will be happy! You will be more fit and energetic."
