Once upon a time there was a little girl named Sunny.

She was always very happy until one day her favorite shirt was lost. Sunny went into her dresser drawer to pick it out to go with her outfit for school the next morning, but it was nowhere to be found.

She started to pull out all of the shirts in her drawers, but still, she could not find her favorite shirt. Sunny was really sad because this was the shirt that her mom bought her when they went to the zoo. Sunny thought it was a really cool shirt, and she liked it because it had pictures of her favorite animals, a panda, a tiger, a gorilla, and a polar bear! Her mom usually lets her wear the shirt to school on Mondays. Since it was Sunday night, and she couldn’t find her shirt, and she always picked her outfits out for school the night before.

Sunny did not know what to do.

Sunny ran downstairs and told her mom that she could not find her favorite shirt. Sunny’s mom was very sweet and nice.

“Do not worry Sunny, I know exactly where your animal shirt is! It is in the washer machine,” said Sunny’s mom.

“Yeay, I’m happy you know where my shirt is mom!”

said Sunny. But then Sunny thought,

“Well what about tomorrow?”

So Sunny asked her mother, “I always wear that shirt on Mondays, now what am I going to do!?!”

And Sunny’s mother said, “I know you always wear that shirt on Monday’s, but tomorrow is a special Monday because you are going to the Zoo tomorrow at school!  Surprise!”

Sunny jumped up and down and waved her hands in the air! “Wow that is great!!” she said.

And her mom said, “I am giving you fifteen dollars to take with you to school tomorrow so that you can buy a new shirt, but you’ll have to wear a different shirt tomorrow while I finish washing your old one!”
