The boy turns the pages of the book, his fingers carefully tracing the words as he reads. It is a
sunny day and Jim and Annie are going to a farm. He looks carefully at Jim in his neat blue shirt.
Annie is wearing a red and white dress. She has golden hair like her brother and very blue eyes.
They smile on each page, waking in beds covered with striped blankets, going to school in an
orange bus, eating pink ice creams with their friends. The farm has a cow and a field with an
apple tree. Some chickens peck at the ground. Jim will milk the cow and Annie will collect the
eggs, the boy reads. There is one brown egg and six are white.
