The Big Race

What are these boys doing? They are waiting. They are waiting for the big race.

They are wearing shorts and shirts. There are numbers on their shirts. Can you see the boy with number fifteen on his shirt?

His name is Tim. All the boys are big and tall but Tim is small and short.

“You cannot run,” they are saying. “We are big and tall. We have long legs. You are small and short. You have short legs. We can run fast. You can’t run fast. You run slowly. Sit down and look at us. You cannot race.”

“No,” says Tim. “I am small but I can run. I run slowly but I can run.”
