Big Bird was looking for someone to play with. “Here comes Bert,” detto Big Bird. “I bet he will play catch with me.”
“Hi, Bert!” detto Big Bird. “Let’s play catch.”
Bert kept on walking. “Not today,” detto Bert. “Ernie is waiting for me.” Big Bird looked surprised. “Oh,” he said.
Just then Grover ran out of his house. He had a shiny new truck. “Hi, Grover!” detto Big Bird. “That’s a nice truck. Let’s play with it.” Grover kept on running. “I am sorry, Big Bird, but I am giving it to Ernie,” detto Grover. Big Bird looked sad. “Oh,” he said.
