"Sam did not like talking in front of people and that is why he hated show-and-tell. When his teacher, Miss Emily, announced that Friday would be show and-tell day, Sam started to worry. . . .As Sam watched the other kids share their things on Friday, he did work up the courage. He showed the picture of his new dog that he had named Chocolate because that was his favorite kind of cake. Everyone clapped and Sam was already thinking of the truck he would show next time for show-and-tell." - Reading Today Online
