A Big Party for the Party
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Mr. Edwin sat on the couch and read the daily newspaper. Meghan lay on the floor in front of the couch reading a book.
2 "Hmm, that's interesting," Mr. Edwin commented.
3 Meghan looked up from her book. "What's interesting?"
4 "There's a pull-out section in the newspaper about the convention," said Mr. Edwin, looking over a colorful page of the newspaper.
5 "What convention?" asked Meghan, puzzled.
6 "The Democratic National Convention," said Mr. Edwin.
7 "What's that?"
8 "It's a four-day event where delegates and members of the Democratic Party meet to nominate their candidate for president."
9 Meghan sat up and faced her dad. "Is it a part of the election this year?"
10 "Yes it is," said Mr. Edwin. "It's quite an event -- a big party for the party!"
11 Meghan giggled. "Funny, Dad. What do they do at the convention?"
12 "Come sit up here and look over the paper with me," said Mr. Edwin.
13 Meghan rose from the floor and sat next to her dad on the couch.
