Bikes, Boo-boos, and Band-Aids
By Kathleen W. Redman
1 Tim loved his new bike. It was blue and silver. It had big wheels. It had a high seat. It was just like his brother's bike. It was a big boy's bike.
2 Tim got on his new bike. He started down the sidewalk. Uh-oh! He hit a rock. The bike ran into the grass. Tim fell over and hit his arm on the bike fender. His arm began to bleed.
3 Tim found his mother and told her about the bike ride. He told her he hated his new bike. She washed his arm and put a Band-Aid on the boo-boo. She told him to try again and smiled at him. Tim felt better.
4 Tim went back outside. He picked up his new bike and pushed it to the sidewalk. He got back on and began to pedal. All of a sudden the bike started down a hill. It went faster and faster. Tim forgot how to make it stop. It ran into a tree, and Tim fell off. He skinned his knees on the sidewalk. This time it hurt really badly. He cried a little bit.
5 Tim found his mother and told her about the mean old tree. He told her he hated his new bike. She washed his knees and put Band-Aids on the boo-boos. She told him to try again and smiled at him. Tim felt better.
