The Importance of a First Aid Kit
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Every once in a while Carl's dad cleans out his car. Today Carl offered to help. Carl ran the vacuum inside the parked car. Dad started to take out everything in the trunk.
 
2     When Carl finished with the vacuum, he went to see what his father had pulled from the trunk. What a pile he saw in the driveway!
 
3     "Oh, wow!" Carl said. "That's where the basketball went. I haven't seen that in weeks."
 
4     "Yeah! Look at what else I found," Dad said. "I can see I need to clean this car out a lot more often." In the pile, there was a dog toy, some CDs, a bunch of candy wrappers, empty soda bottles, and a box.
 
5     "Where should this box go?" Carl asked. "What's inside it, anyway?"
 
6     "That's going back in the trunk," Dad answered. "That's the first aid box."
 
7     "It looks like a fishing tackle box to me," Carl said.
 
8     "That's what it is meant to be," Dad said, "but I filled it with first aid supplies for our family. It is lightweight, has handles, and has lots of space. An art supply box would have worked well, too. I should label it better so anyone that looks will know what it really is. I think I'll do that this afternoon. I should also check what's inside."
 
9     "Why do we need a first aid kit in the car?" Carl asked.
