Eager Eagle loves school too much. He loves all the things at school so much, he begins to eat them—chalk, erasers, crayons, pencils, puzzle pieces, etc. When he cannot find the chalk to do a math problem on the board, he realizes what he has done. He apologizes to his classmates and promises never to eat the things in the classroom again…….but why does he have a pencil in his mouth?
