Story: The G__ Farms Party

I saw a big pumpkin on the roof.
It was funny.
I had a hayride.
We picked pumpkins.
I peed in the portapotty.
I went through a corn maze.
There was a lot of corn in the corn maze.
I went on a train.
There were skeletons in the tunnel.
The train on its wheels went clickety-clack.

Story: Poisonous Things

We don't eat pipe plants.
They are poisonous.
Frogs are camouflaged behind rocks.
We can't step on them.

Some chemicals we don't use on our hands.
Chemicals might make you sick.
