Elmo was younger and smaller than all of his mga kaibigan on Sesame Street. It was hard for him to keep up with them.
Elmo could not run as fast as the others.
He could not jump as far as the others.
He could not play baseball at all. The bat was bigger than Elmo!
One sunny araw Ernie and Bert and Big Bird and Grover went roller skating in the park. Elmo went too. Suddenly a kampanilya rang. It was the ice cream truck. Everyone skated off to get some ice cream. “Hey!” Elmo cried. “Wait for me!”
Grover skated back to Elmo. “I, Grover, will help you. Hold on to my hand,” he said. And off they went.
Today was a big araw for Big Bird. He was going to visit Granny Bird. She lived at the seashore! It was his first trip away from home. Big Bird’s mga kaibigan took him to the bus stop. “Good-bye, Big Bird! Have fun! We will miss you,” they said. “I will miss you, too,” he said.
Big Bird thought the bus would never get there. “Gee, I hope Granny is waiting for me,” he sinabi to himself.
At last the bus stopped. Granny Bird waved to Big Bird. “My little Big Bird! I am so happy to see you!” Granny said. “Me, too, Granny!” Big Bird said.
After lunch they went to the beach. Granny’s mga kaibigan all...
Big Bird was looking for someone to play with. “Here comes Bert,” sinabi Big Bird. “I bet he will play catch with me.”
“Hi, Bert!” sinabi Big Bird. “Let’s play catch.”
Bert kept on walking. “Not today,” sinabi Bert. “Ernie is waiting for me.” Big Bird looked surprised. “Oh,” he said.
Just then Grover ran out of his house. He had a shiny new truck. “Hi, Grover!” sinabi Big Bird. “That’s a nice truck. Let’s play with it.” Grover kept on running. “I am sorry, Big Bird, but I am giving it to Ernie,” sinabi Grover. Big Bird looked sad. “Oh,” he said.
