Description

Pearl has new skates.
They are real skates
(not double runners),
and she can't wait to try them.

Pearl inches out onto the frozen pond.
But instead of twirling,
she topples.
Instead of spinning,
she falls -- splaaat!

Pearl has new skates.
They are shiny white
with red tassels,
and she loves them.

Will Pearl ever skate in real life the way she skates in her dreams?
