All Kinds Of Buttons
One afternoon Button showed his Big Book of Buttons to Acorn. In the book were buttons of all types, made with all kinds of materials. Some were painted and some were enameled. Others were fashioned out of wood, ceramic, glass, seashell, and even thread.
As they turned the pages, Acorn said, “I never knew there were so many beautiful buttons.”
Button nodded his head but didn’t comment.
When they got to the end of the book, Button let out a deep sigh.
”Is something wrong?” Acorn asked.
Button waved his hand.
“All these magnificent buttons exist,” he replied with a frown, “and I am just a plain, black button.”
”But you are a button with personality,” said Acorn, “and a sword!”
At that Button drew his needle and strutted a bit. “Quite right, Acorn, quite right.”
