THE BOY WHO WAS MEAN TO PLANTS
Keith Mickie
Grade 1
Washington School, Glenview, IL

Once upon a time there was a boy named Tommy who was mean to all kinds of plants.
He would pick their leaves and petals.
One day he fell asleep under a tree and when he woke up he tried to move but he couldn't.
His feet were planted in the ground.
His legs were green, his hands were leaves.
He turned into a flower.
Tommy was thirsty, but he couldn't get himself a drink of water.
Then came a boy with a sprinkling can and watered Tommy.
It felt real good.
Tommy woke up and saw he was just dreaming.
He was so happy.
He was never mean to anything again.
