Emily needed a new jacket. It was getting cold, and her old jacket was too small. Her mother told her that they would go shopping on Saturday.
Bright and early Saturday morning, Emily's mother woke her up. They had breakfast and walked to the mall. They went into Jacket City first.
Emily found a blue jacket, but it was too small. Her mother found a red jacket, but Emily didn't like the color. They looked at some other jackets, but Emily didn't like any of them.
Emily's mother took her to another store, Le Jaquette, and they began looking again. Emily found a yellow and brown jacket that she liked. Her mother found a blue jacket that Emily liked, too.
Emily tried on both jackets, but neither one of them fit. One was too small, and one was too large. Emily put them back on the rack.
All of a sudden, Emily shouted, "Look, Mom!" She pointed at a girl wearing a blue jacket with white trim. "That's the kind of jacket I want!"
Emily's mother walked over to the girl. "Excuse me," she said. "My daughter wants a new jacket just like yours. Would you mind telling me where you bought it?"
"No, ma'am," the girl said. "I bought it at Paul's. The store is at the corner of the mall."
"Thank you," Emily's mother said.Paragraphs 10 to 16:
