A Bit of Silliness Excerpt:

The sun was warm and the breeze was cool.  Above, white fluffy clouds polka dotted the bright blue sky.  Today, Owen was glad to be spending the day with his friend Andy, at the park. There were a lot of other kids at the park too, since it was such a nice day.  And so, Owen and Andy played on the slide, the swings, and the monkey bars. Then Andy noticed the other kids all seemed to be playing together.  “Hey Owen! I think everyone is playing hide and seek.  Do you want to see if they’ll let us play too?”  Andy said.

“That sounds like fun.”  Owen said, and the two boys walked over to the group of kids.

“Can we play too?”  Owen asked.

“Sure. We’re playing hide and seek.  I’m Luis.  What’s your name?” Luis asked.

“I’m Owen and this is Andy.”  Owen replied.

“OK, Owen and Andy, find a place to hide.”  Luis said with a smile.
