The Little Worm Finds a Home
Breanna, Age 9, Canyon Country, CA

There was once a worm. It did not have a home! One day the little worm said ”I can not live in this big open world! I have to find a home!” So the little worm went to find a home. It traveled day and night. One day the little worm met a bear.

He said,”Hello up there!” The bear said, ”Who dares to wake me up!” In a small voice the little worm said,” I DO!”

The bear said,” You leave right now!” So the little worm set off again to find a home. The next day the little worm found a bird’s nest. The little worm thought,”This will be a good home!” About a half hour later a bird came! The little worm thought,”I should leave because if I stay I will be eaten!”

So the little worm set off to find a home. Now the little worm was hungry! The little worm said ”I need to find something to eat!” So the little worm set off to find something to eat. About an hour later the little worm found a leaf. 5 minutes later the little worm was full. The little worm said ”Now I should start looking for a home.”

The next day the little worm found a box. He thought ”This would be a very nice home!” So the little worm stayed in the box until one day somebody took the box away! But the little worm did not know it! He traveled in that box for 7 days and on the seventh day the little worm was thinking ”Why are we moving?” So the little worm peeked out the box and saw that he was in a truck! The little worm said ”I have to get out of here before I will be taken far away!”

The little worm squeezed through the box. He said ”How will I get down when this truck is moving so fast? I know! I can yell really loud that there is a human lying on the road!” So the little worm yelled” STOP! Please do not run me over!” The man in the truck pushed his brakes as hard as he could and the little worm went flying to the back of the truck and hopped out! The little worm said ”I am never going in a box again!”

So the little worm set off to find a home. The little worm found a tree. The little worm thought” This will make a good home!” The little worm was up in the tree but then he saw birds coming toward him! The little worm said ”I have to get down fast and I mean fast!” The little worm got down safely. The little worm said ”Whenever I think something is a good home it always turns out not to be!"

So the little worm once again set off to find a home. Now the little worm was getting tired! The little worm said ”I need to find a home fast because I am getting tired and I need to rest! I will travel 2 more days and if I don’t find a home I will just live in the big open world.”

The next day the little worm found a hole! The little worm said "I hope this will be a good home.” The little worm went into the hole. The little worm said ”Hello! Is anyone in here? I guess this will be a good home."

And the little worm lived happily ever after!
