Joel's Happy List

[For preschoolers]

Joel was sitting on the living room floor with his blocks stacked all around him. He was building a big city that would have roads and bridges and tunnels for his toy cars. At that moment his brown and black cat, Muffin, who always liked to know what Joel was doing, walked right through the middle of the block city.

"Do you want to live in my city?" Joel asked the kitty, patting him gently on his back. The kitten just purred and curled up on the floor next to Joel. Joel's mother watched from the kitchen door.

"That was very loving of you to pet Muffin so gently," she said. "We'll write that down on your Happy List."
