Start Lesson One.

 

Kimberly has a pet rabbit. Her parents gave it to her for Easter. She was very excited to get it. She named her rabbit Edward.

Kimberly has always wanted a pet rabbit. Rabbits are soft and cute. They don't make a lot of noise, and they're fun to hold. Kimberly holds Edward all the time.

Right now she keeps Edward in a large box with a bowl of water, animal bedding, and rabbit food. Kimberly's going to build a cage for the rabbit. She doesn't want him to escape. If he gets loose, he might not come back.
