Today I Shall Grow
By Kathleen W. Redman

      "Today I shall grow one inch," Sal S. Snake said. "Then I will be six inches long.

      Sal really wanted to be a big snake. He thought about it all the time. He was still very small. He was only five inches long.

      "If I got to be about six feet long, no one would laugh at me," he thought. "Being six feet long is better than being five inches long."

      Sal's father, Sam S. Snake, was ten feet long. He was a very big snake.

      "Sal," he said, "No matter how hard you try to grow, you will not be any bigger until it is the right time."
