Home for Lunch
“What’s that?” asked Ana.
“Dad said to make lunch while he’s working,” said Juan.
“Are you calling that lunch?” she asked. She pointed at
something that looked like a pile of mush.
“I’m trying to build a banana house, but the banana slices are too slippery,” said Juan.
“I can help,” Ana said, pulling a jar from the refrigerator
so that it could warm up.
When Dad walked in, he found a surprise. Ana and Juan had built a house of food. Banana slabs held up a corn-chip roof. Peanut butter held everything together like glue.
Ana and Juan knew they would have to eat this mess.
But the look on Dad’s face was worth it!
