The Fish — Cycle 62+


The Fish — Cycle 62+


Dad and Tiff are on a fishing trip together. They are having a great time, but Tiff is getting a little impatient.  She manages to hook a fish, but she ignores Dad's advice to slow down.  Instead, the line gets caught on a rock and Tiff breaks her rod by reeling in too hard. Tiff admits she should be more patient next time.

Full Text:

See Tiff and Dad fish.

It is fun!  

See that fish.

Tiff said, "I got it!"

But the fish got stuck on a rock.

Dad said, "Be still."

But Tiff tugged and tugged.

Hear the rod crack.

She lost the fish!

Tiff said, "I admit it. I did rush."
