Summary: Chloe the bunny is the middle child- she has 10 older siblings and 10 younger siblings. When Chloe's dad bring home a television, she doesn't like how it takes her family away. Chloe finds some bubble wrap and pretty soon all the other kids came to play and pretend with Chloe, except Mom & Dad. After bed, even Dad runs to play with the bubble wrap.
Classroom Ideas: This story could start a discussion about TV and imagination.
