Gradpa wanted to read the newspaper.

He settled down in his armchair.

He took the morning paper onto his lap.

He looked for his reading glasses on the table.

They were not there.

He looked under the table.

They were not there.

He went to his bedroom and searched.

They were not on the bed or in the cupboard.

They were not on top of the shelf.

Oh where could they be,” wondered grandpa.

He called out to grandma.

Have you seen my glasses?” he asked her.

Grandma came to the room to search.

She looked at grandpa and laughed.

They are on top of your head,” she said.

He had pushed his reading glasses on top of his head.

Grandpa laughed too.
