The What Do You Love about America? Show

By Brenda B. Covert
1     Andy Wood made up a new TV show. He called it What Do You Love about America? Every week he drove to a new town. He met people and asked them that question. Some of them got to be on TV. Then, people would vote for the best answer. The winner would get a prize. Winners got a new U.S. flag and fifty dollars!
 
2     Sometimes Andy stopped people who didn't like America. They didn't have anything good to say about America. Andy wondered where they would rather live. They never gave him an answer. Andy put those people on TV, too. They did not win anything.
 
3     Manuel loved the show. His family watched it every Monday night before bedtime. "I hope they come to our town someday," Manny would say.
 
4     "Don't get your hopes up," Abuela would reply.
 
5     Manny did not listen to his grandma. What good is life without hope? He would always hope for good things.
 
6     One day, a big white van pulled up to the park where Manuel and his friends played. They stopped shooting hoops. People piled out of the van. A man lifted a black box to his shoulder. It was a TV camera. Then another man appeared. It was Andy Wood!
 
7     The kids ran to greet Andy and his crew. They wanted to know why Andy had come to the park.
 
8     Andy grinned. "I wanted to ask you: ‘What do you love about America?' Who wants to go first?"
 
9     It was the first time Andy had chosen kids rather than adults to be on TV. It was a dream-come-true for Manny! All the kids jumped and yelled and waved. Manny jumped higher than the others, but Erin was picked to go first.
