Tommy Learns about Trustworthiness on a Train
By Beth A. Beutler
  

1     "Oh, boy!" Tommy said to his brother, Carl. "We're going on a train!"
 
2     Tommy Belk was now six years old. He really liked trains. He had never been on one! For his birthday, his family planned a surprise.
 
3     "We're going to drive up to the mountains on Saturday," Tommy's dad said. "Then we will take a train to the top!"
 
4     "Hooray!" Tommy squealed. "Thank you!"
 
5     Tommy woke up early Saturday. It wasn't even light yet. "Come on," he said as he shook his brother awake. Carl rolled over and covered his head with a blanket. "Go away!" he said.
 
6     Tommy gave up and went to the kitchen.
 
7     "You are up early!" Mom said. She was flipping pancakes. Pancakes were Tommy's favorite breakfast food.
 
8     "I can't wait to get on the train!" he said.
 
9     Mom smiled. Before long, the rest of the family came down. They ate breakfast and piled into their mini-van.
 
10     It was a two hour drive. Tommy could hardly stand it. He kept asking, "Are we there yet?" But Dad asked him to stop.
