1 Today was Alan Ant's first day of school.
2 He wore his best shirt and pants. He put on his new hat, too.
3 For breakfast he had a sugar cube and a crumb of bread. He had a cup of dew to drink.
4 After breakfast, his mother said, "Alan, you will like school. I want you to learn new things. I want you to have fun. I want you to be safe."
5 Alan was in a hurry. He wanted to get started on his walk.
6 "Be still," his mother said. "I want to tell you some rules."
7 "Oh, no," Alan said. "Not more rules!"
8 "Yes," his mother said, "More rules. These rules will keep you safe."
9 Alan sat down.
10 "Rule One," his mother said. "Always look both ways before you cross a path."
11 "Why?" Alan asked.
12 "Because you need to see what is coming. A human, or a bear, or something else big might step on you!"
