Elmo was younger and smaller than all of his friends on Sesame Street. It was hard for him to keep up with them.
Elmo could not run as fast as the others.
He could not jump as far as the others.
He could not play baseball at all. The bat was bigger than Elmo!
One sunny day Ernie and Bert and Big Bird and Grover went roller skating in the park. Elmo went too. Suddenly a bell rang. It was the ice cream truck. Everyone skated off to get some ice cream. “Hey!” Elmo cried. “Wait for me!”
Grover skated back to Elmo. “I, Grover, will help you. Hold on to my hand,” he said. And off they went.
