There was a four year old boy named Tyler who loved race cars. He wanted to drive a race car, but he didn't have one, so he walked instead. One day he walked to the store. It was a long walk.
When Tyler got to the store, he looked at all of the toys. He really liked a really big toy truck that he found, and he also really liked a really big helicopter that he found. The truck was red and the helicopter was blue.
He wanted to buy them, but he didn't have any money. He looked on the floor to see if there was any money that people had dropped, but he didn't find any money. He wasn't able to buy the toy truck and helicopter.
He walked home and told his mommy all about the toys that he wanted, and he asked her if she would buy them for him. She told him that she didn't have any money either. That made him sad, but his mommy told him he should wait and see if he got the toys for his birthday.
When his birthday arrived, his mommy had bought him the big red toy truck and the big blue toy helicopter that he wanted! He was so happy, and he played with them all day!
