Sam's Rainy Day Boots

The sky was dark with big, puffy, gray clouds, and there was a light drizzle of rain. The little boy in the bright green boots and bright green raincoat did not seem to mind at all.

"Sam, come swing with us!" called his friends from the playground.
"Thanks, maybe later!" Sam shouted back.
Sam loved to swing, but right now he was too busy jumping in puddles with his rainy day boots. Sam loved his rainy day boots. They were soft and bright green, his favorite color. Best of all, they made squishy sounds when he walked through puddles.
Squish. Squish. He tramped through the puddles. Squish. Squish.

"Sam, come play blocks with me!" called Timmy from his front door as Sam squished by.
"Thanks, Timmy, maybe later!" Sam shouted back.
Sam loved to play blocks, but he had puddles to jump! He had a big smile on his face as he jumped from puddle to puddle. Squish. Squish.

When it was time to go home for dinner, Sam walked slowly. He went through every puddle. Squish, squish went the bright green boots.
Looking up at the sky, Sam saw the sun peeking through the big, puffy gray clouds. By the time he reached home, the sun was shining brightly, and the puddles were beginning to disappear. Sam felt a little sad.
"Just in time for dinner," Sam's mother said as he plodded through the front door. "We're having pizza!"
"Pizza!" Sam shouted enthusiastically as he took off his bright green raincoat. He grabbed his green teddy bear soap and scrubbed his hands. Then he sat down in his chair at the kitchen table. Puddle jumping always made him hungry!
After dinner, he ran up the stairs to his bedroom. The green boots squished one last time before he took them off and carefully put them away.
Still feeling a little sad, he put on his favorite pajamas, the ones with the race cars on them, and climbed into bed.
Sam's mother came into his room. "Tomorrow will be another rainy day," she whispered as she leaned over to kiss him goodnight. Suddenly Sam smiled.
He was still smiling when he fell fast asleep.
