There lives a family on a hill, it consists of a mama, a papa, a girl, a boy, and a baby. On top of their mantel is a snow globe. Inside of that snow globe lives a similar family. No one in the family notices the snow globe family except for the baby. The snow globe family desperately wish they could get a really big snow storm, but no one has shook the snow globe for a long time. One day, the baby is able to get a hold of it, and shakes it as hard as he can. The little family in the snow globe is ecstatic and they are able to go sledding. They hope another big snow storm will come their way. EL - ADVISABLE. Anna Mattheus, Elementary Teacher.
