Something in the Sand
Every day since school was over, Jenny and her friends went to the beach. They had fun playing in the sand and in the water. The other children knew how to swim, but Jenny didn’t. So she built sand castles while they swam. It was fun, too.
One day while digging, Jenny’s shovel hit something. There was SOMETHING there! Yes… there WAS something in the sand!
Jenny was scared.. She called to her friends to come see what was under the sand. She was just not brave enough to keep digging by herself.
