Nandi sat on the blue steps of her house.
She was wondering…
What if jelly beans made you jump really high?
You could get to school in one big leap!
What if goats and chickens could talk?
Would they tell good jokes?
What if houses were rocket ships?
Your family could go on holidays to the moon!
What if no one had to cook? What if supper just arrived on the table?
(And it was always your favourite.)
What if ice-lollies never melted?
They could last all summer.
What if the pictures in books flew around your head when Dad read to you?
What if my pink gumboots were magical?
I could run faster than my big brother!
What if you squeezed your eyes shut and…
“Nandi, what are you doing?” asked Nandi’s big brother.
Nandi sat back on the step with a big smile on her face.
“Just wondering,” she said.
