Tell Me a Story . . . Eric

Ms. Nancy asked Eric to tell her a story today. Here it is:

Once upon a time there was a race car driver. He got in an accident and he got hurt. Then he got a bandage. Now he is a race pickup truck driver. Now he works at a place where they build trucks. Now he has a new working truck. It is a crane. His crane can knock down buildings.

I like his use of "once upon a time." It's not quite the fairy tale one might expect with that introduction, but he's actually included some elements of story. (Note the conflict ,"he got hurt," and resolution, "he got a bandage." Nice, right?)

Just wait. I'm asking Sarah to tell me one tomorrow. Just a guess, but I don't think there will be any race cars, pickup trucks, or cranes that knock down buildings in hers.
