Glue to the Rescue Excerpt:

On an early Monday morning, as the soft light of dawn seeped through her bedroom curtains, Katie slowly stirred in her bed. She yawned and rubbed the sleepiness from her eyes. Then she remembered: today was the day she and Tom were going to present their diorama to the class!

Katie quickly hopped out of bed. The excitement for the day ahead had her practically bouncing with joy. She had butterflies in her stomach, but it was the good kind. Leaving her bedroom, Katie bounded down the hallway and found the bathroom door open. Her mother was in front of the mirror with her toothbrush, getting ready for the day.

“Mom!” Katie said, poking her head in the room. “Today’s the day!”
