I was running faster than I ever ran before. I didn’t know why the man in the black mask was chasing me to begin with, but I was really, really scared. This is the most scared I think I have ever been before. All I did was turn the corner and accidentally bump into this man and the next thing I knew he was screaming and yelling at me to “Come back!” Who was this creepy man yelling at me? Why was he chasing me? I made a quick dash behind a parked car in the parking lot of Wendy’s. I thought I may have lost him, but I felt his strong hand grab me and shake me. “What, what, what do you want with me?” I hollered at him. He kept shaking me. Finally I woke up and my mom was shaking me in my bed telling me to “Get up for school.” She said, “You were having a terrible dream Jason.” Boy was she ever right about that!

Elisabeth held the torn piece of paper in her hand. She could hardly believe her eyes. It was a map of her backyard. There was a large X marked in one corner. “Treasure” whispered Elisabeth. “I’ve found a map of hidden treasure.” ran and got something to dig with. Then she raced into the backyard. She looked at the map again. There was writing across the top of it. She read the words. “Go ten steps south of the east corner of the house.” Quickly, Elisabeth walked ten steps away from the corner. She looked at the map again. “The treasure is right here,” Elisabeth said as she started to dig. She dug but found nothing. “Maybe I need to dig in another place,” she thought. Elisabeth took a few steps and started to dig again near the first hole. A few minutes later, Elisabeth’s mother came out of the house. “Thank you,” she said, “for digging the spot for the flower garden I asked you to make last week. I thought that my map would help you.” “Yes,” Elisabeth said as she smiled slowly. “It really helped me a lot.”

If you have ever walked with bare feet on a rocky beach and stepped on something sharp, you may have found a barnacle. Barnacles are small animals that make their own sharp shells. They stick themselves onto rocks, boats, or jetties. When the water covers them, barnacles wave tiny feet to catch their food. Barnacles eat plants that are so small that we cannot see them.

Mr. Mouse put down his newspaper and twitched his whiskers angrily. “Every time I try to prop up my paws and read, the telephone rings. All I want to do is get my newspaper read!” Little Mouse heard what his father said. “I can help Daddy!” he thought happily. While Mr. Mouse was talking on the phone, Little Mouse took his red crayon and drew lines and circles on the newspaper. “Now it’s just like Daddy wanted,” he said proudly, “His newspaper is red!”

The first traffic lights didn’t direct cars. Instead, they told carts pulled by the horsed when to stop and when to go. The first electric traffic light was put up in 1914. It had only two colors, red and green. A police officer had to stand at the corner and work the light by hand. Soon traffic lights could be found on busy corners all across the country.

Greg was sitting on his back porch, looking out at the ocean, when he saw something moving toward him from the beach. “Mom, come and look!” he called. “It’s a baby sea lion!” Sure enough, the little animal came right up to the porch. Greg could see that its flipper was hurt. Greg fed it a fish while his mother called the vet. Soon the doctor and his helper came to take the sea lion to the animal hospital where they could take care of its hurt flipper. Greg waved good-bye to his new friend. “We’ll come and visit you at the hospital as soon as you’re feeling better,” he promised.

It was a glorious morning in Alabama. The sun was shining through the trees. Alan couldn't wait to find his fishing pole and call his friend Sam to go fishing. They had a great time on these early morning fishing trips. They took their dogs with them and the dogs would swim in the lake while they fished. It was so funny to watch those dogs paddle around the lake.
