One morning Ben?s mother baked bread but the bread was too hot.
Then Ben could not eat it until it was cool after school. That day Ben
painted a picture of his mother. On the way home from school Ben
met many animals. They gave too much advice to Ben. Owl said,
"Make bigger eyes". Alligator said, "Make a bigger mouth." Rabbit
said, "Make bigger ears." Elephant said, "Make a longer nose." But
the picture of his mother looked so ugly. Ben showed the picture to
his mother and Ben?s mother said, "I just love it!" Then Ben ate the
bread with lots of honey on the top. Ben?s mother is good. We think
she loves Ben too much.
We like honey, too! We like animals, too! We like bread, too! We like
all the pictures.
