Zoe's Colors
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Zoe took a pad of paper. She put it on her easel. She got a glass jar. She added water to it. She put it on the table by the easel.
 
2     Next, she got out the brushes. Zoe had five of them.
 
3     One brush was small. It was good for painting tiny things. One brush was wide. It was good for painting big areas.
 
4     The other brushes were in between sizes. They helped Zoe paint many things.
 
5     Last of all came the paints. She had just five colors. They were blue, yellow, red, black, and white.
 
6     Zoe was not happy. She wanted to get green, purple, and orange, too. She needed them to make really good pictures.
 
7     Mom just shook her head. She said, "You already have them. You just cannot see them yet."
 
8     That was silly, thought Zoe. How can you have colors and not see them?
