"Ben,it's dinner time,"said Mom,one wet day."I'm coming,"said Ben.
Then all the lights went out. "Help! I can't see you,"said Ben.
"I'm here by the window,"said Mom.Ben went to the window and he looked up the road at the houses. No one had a light on.No one.
"Where are the candles?" said Mom."I can find the candles for you,and the matches,"said Ben."They are down here.""Good boy,"said Mom.
They had dinner in the yellow candlelight.
"I like candles,"said Mom."Me too,"said Ben."This is fun."
At bedtime,Ben and Mom went into the bathroom with a candle.Ben sang a little song. "This is the way I brush my teeth,I brush my teeth,I brush my teeth.This is the way I brush my teeth,I like my yellow candle."
They went into Ben's bedroom with the candle...but before he got into bed the lights came on! "Oh,Mom!"said Ben."The lights have come on! I liked my candle.I don't want to blow it out." Mom smiled,and she put the lights out."You can have a candle,"she said,and she sang a song.
"Here comes a candle to light you to bed ,and here comes a story for Ben and for Ted."And then,after the story,Mom and ben blew the candle out.
