The morning started like any other day. The little boy and Big Bird had breakfast of cereal, milk, and toast. After breakfast, they were playing catch and watching TV when, suddenly, the family dog picked up Big Bird and ran across the room. The little boy tried to save Big Bird, but not until Big Bird’s side was torn open. Oh no! Thank goodness Papa was able to sew Big Bird up and kept his insides in and the outsides out. After Papa finished sewing his side, Big Bird sat in his favorite chair, thinking about his long, busy day.
