A Colorful Carnival, by Russell Conover

Betty, four years old, looked around with glee. Her first carnival!

The blue roller coaster looked frighteningly fast yet invigorating. The yellow flames flickered from the sticks the showman was juggling. The clown honked his red nose as he joked with kids. The green Ferris wheel seemed to stretch into the sky, inviting Betty to soar into space. All this occurred under the deep orange sunset.

Her eyes sparkling, Betty grinned ear to ear. She’d never seen so much vivid color in one place, and she’d only just entered the carnival. What other treasures awaited inside?

“C’mon, Mom. Let’s go!”
