Parts That Make a Whole
By Jane Runyon
  

1     It was Pizza Party Prize Day in Mrs. Kim's class. Mrs. Kim had a day like this once a month. If a student got all of his work turned in on time for a month, that student got to have pizza and games on the last Friday of the month. This was a special year. Everyone in class had gotten all of their work turned in on time each month. Everyone had enjoyed all the pizza parties.
 
2     When it came time to clean up, Mike made a discovery. Someone had knocked a wooden puzzle onto the floor. The pieces had fallen out of the frame. He was in a hurry. He called to Mrs. Kim, "Do I have to put this puzzle back together? I didn't knock it off the shelf."
 
3     "I would appreciate it very much if you would," responded Mrs. Kim. "We wouldn't want to lose any of the pieces."
 
4     "I don't care if we lose some of the pieces," mumbled Mike.
 
5     J.J. heard what he said. "Sure you care," she said. "If one of the pieces is missing, the picture won't be complete."
 
6     "I never thought of that," said Mike. "This is one of my favorite puzzles. I wouldn't like it if I couldn't see the picture when I finished."
 
7     Mrs. Kim had come over to the children to check on their progress. "That is right," she said. "Think of all the things that just wouldn't be right if one piece were missing. They wouldn't be whole."
 
8     "I know one," said Chris. "What would brownies be without the chocolate?"
