Welcome to Storyline online brought to you by SAG-AFTRA Foundation. My name is David harbor and today I will be reading snap see the Alligator did not ask to be in this book. Words by Julie for lack of pictures by 10 milligram. Snap see the alligator wasn’t feeling like himself. His feet felt Draghi is skin felt baggy. His tail wouldn’t swish this way and that and worst of all, his big jaw Snap. This is terrible. I’m just hungry. Why is this rude narrator trying to make it seem like I need a nap. So snaps, he went off in search of food and he walked along the edge of the pond, scooted up tall, tall hill. The shimmy through the forest. Urine, awful married or you’re just describing what you see in the illustrations. Snapseed. The big mean alligator, kept looking for food, like to eat tiny defenseless birds and soft, fuzzy bunnies. He proud through the forest looking for victims. When he came to it’s just a store, a grocery store. It’s where I buy my food snaps. He looked hungry really at the other shoppers. While loading is cart with putting peanut butter, pita bread and popcorn? Yes. Snap see, the alligator was particularly fond of a certain letter of the alphabet. Only eat food that starts with the letter P. You don’t have to make it seem like I only by storybook food. I’m also buying cheddar apples, pretzels, pasta pairs. Uh-huh. It’s just a coincidence. Snapseed, the big, mean Hungry Alligator who only like food that started with the letter P, carried his groceries back through the forest, back down the hill, back around the pond until he got to a surprisingly lopsided shack. You are really choosing me off. It’s my house. I built it myself. I’ll say. Stop the alligator took his groceries into this splinter laden shed and slammed the door quite hard. He was inside. Still inside. What was he doing in there? Was he making crafty plans? Was he roasting innocent forest creatures that he already had stored in this freezer, and he fallen asleep. I made a peanut butter sandwich and now I’m reading a book. You have to come out. The story is really boring now. If you must know, party, snap, see the alligator trying to better his reputation with the other animals, decided to throw a party, snap see, vacuum the rug. He made goody bags for all his guess. Weight. Those aren’t goody bags. He’s just taking out the garbage snaps. He should really put out goody bags for his guess, they love those. You know what? I did not ask to be in this book. I was just having a normal day. And suddenly you were talking about what I was doing. So I’m throwing a party to make things more interesting. I hope you’re happy now. I just want you to know. Thank you. No, go ahead. I can hear you breathing. Stops. These Party was shaping up to be quite a festive event. Colorful streamers hung from the ceiling. There were cubes of cheese and a both punch. Some kind of danceable music was playing. Then snap, these friends started to arrive. They were laughing and dancing. They weren’t hungry or thirsty. They looked like they were having a really good time. Yes, a fine top. Right. You can come in. Oh gosh me. Humble narrator. Well, I don’t know. Let me check my calendar. I suppose I could come in for an hour to someone as to demonstrate proper dance steps. All the important guests, it finally arrived in Snapseed. Sharp teeth were still glinting menacingly. Who’s actually a lovely host? Does anyone we’re putting up? Because putting is really good. And we are putting and did the chicken dance. We were really looking forward to Snapseed throwing parties like this. Every week. The end. I love reading. I think books are an amazing way to go inside of yourself and outside of yourself. Because you are able to get lost in another person’s story, another person’s life. And sometimes when we’re feeling lots of things, we can feel like we’re all along in these feelings. And then you read a book and you realize that everybody has a lot of the same feelings and that you’re not alone. And that’s a wonderful thing for a human being to feel like you’re part of something larger than just yourself. And also, they’re not like movies and TV because you get the cast them yourself, in your imagination and your brain. And you can choose whoever you want to play the parts in the book.
