Grandma's Non-birthday Card
By Shannon Jackson
1 "Mom!" Scott yelled from the living room. "I want to send Grandma a birthday card!" He threw his crayons down and ran into the kitchen. Mom was putting dishes away.
2 "Wow, Scott, you are excited," said Mom. "What are you talking about?" Mom brushed Scott's brown bangs out of his eyes so she could see his face.
3 "I made an awesome card with my crayons, and I want to send it to Grandma for her birthday."
4 "Well, that's very nice of you, Scott, but it's not her birthday," said Mom.
5 Scott made an unhappy face. "Aw, I really worked hard on it, too. It is the best card I ever made," said Scott.
6 "Let me take a look at it. Can you bring it here and show it to me?" asked Mom.
7 Scott brought the card in to show his mom. It was very bright and colorful. "I can tell this took you a long time to make. Your handwriting looks very good," said Mom. "We can set it in a safe place to save it. Then we can send it to her when it is closer to her birthday. She will love it, Scott."
8 Scott handed the card to Mom, but his big brown eyes still looked very sad. Mom felt bad for Scott. She tried to think of a way she could make him smile again.
