CHAPTER 1

Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He had gone with his class to the bakery, the fire station and the pet store. Today Franklin's class was going to the museum. Franklin was so excited that he could hardly eat his breakfast.

The museum had lots of steps and huge doors.

"Wow, it's big," said Franklin.

"It has to be," said Beaver. "There are real dinosaurs inside."

Beaver had been to the museum before. She knew everything about it.

"Big dinosaurs," she emphasized. "So big that they ate trees for breakfast."

Franklin was afraid to ask what dinosaurs ate for lunch.

Franklin sat down on the steps.

"What's wrong?" asked Snail.

"Beaver says there are real dinosaurs in the museum."

Snail looked alarmed. "That sounds scary."

Franklin nodded.

In the museum lobby, Mr. Owl went over the rules. No shouting. No running. And stay with the group.

"Mr. Owl," said Beaver, "one more thing. Watch out for dinosaurs."

Moose and Bear laughed.

Franklin didn't. He moved a little closer to Mr. Owl.
