Norma Jean is a kangaroo; shes the best jumper ever. But she never stops jumping and sometimes its not fun to play with a jumping bean!
Norma Jean, Jumping Bean by Joanna Cole
Norma Jean likes to jump! She jumps out of bed! She jumps into her clothes! She jumps down the stairs, and jumps all the way to school.
Unfortunately, she cant seem to sit still long enough to hear the story. She bumps into her friends tower of blocks, and bounces a friend off the teeter-totter.
Then her friends dont want to play with her any more, until the class Field Day when they really need her. She is very sad now.
Now, they need her to win the hurdles, the high jump and the potato sack race. She is very happy now.
