Lexi’s Bad Day

We shall make music to brighten the day (Children’s Songbook, 252).

1. Lexi wanted to wear her pink skirt, but it was dirty.

2. She asked for strawberry jam on her toast, but it was all gone.

3. Lexi wanted to play on the swings, but it was raining.

4. “I’m having a bad day,” Lexi said.

5. “What can we do to help you feel better?” Mom asked.

6. “Let’s sing Primary songs,” Lexi said. “Good idea,” Mom said.

7. Lexi and Mom sang together. They sang “ ‘Give,’ Said the Little Stream.”

Then they sang “Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam.”

And they ended with “Follow the Prophet.”

8. “I think I can have a good day now,” Lexi said.

“I’m glad,” Mom said.
