Apple Picking Day
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     It was a perfect day. The Adams family was going to the mountains in North Carolina. They were going to an orchard. There, they would pick apples.
2     Zach, Beth, and Mark loved apples. They could hardly wait to get there.
3     Finally, they were driving up the long, dusty road. It wound up the side of the mountain. Near the top was the orchard.
4     Many other people were at the orchard, too. There were many things to see.
5     First they had to get a little wagon. A basket of apples would be too heavy to carry.
6     Then they got two baskets. They were put in the wagon. Now they were ready to pick apples.
7     Zach was oldest. That meant he could pull the wagon first.
8     There were so many trees. Where should they start picking? Not all the apples were ripe yet. They wanted Rome apples. They were ripe.
9     Dad got directions. They walked down the mountain. Then they walked beside a big pond. There were ducks and geese there.
