My MOUTH IS A VOLCANO! Written by Julia Cook. Illustrated by Carrie Hartman. My name is Louis. People say I erupt a lot. I don’t think I do… I have a lot to say, and all of my words are
very important to me. When other people talk, words just pop into my head. Then they slide down onto my tongue. My tummy starts to rumble, and then it starts
to grumble. My words begin to Wiggle and then they do the Jiggle My tongue pushes all of my important words up against my teeth, and then… HEY GUESS WHAT YOU GUYS!!! I Erupt! Words just explode out of my mouth. My mouth is a volcano!!! In class, my teacher says that when we want to say something, we are supposed to look at her, raise our hand, and wait until she calls on us. I tried that. After I waited patiently for what seemed like 62 years, my important words slid down from my head onto my tongue. Rumble Grumble Teacher I think we should have recess all day I’m hungry too! Can we go to lunch now? My tummy started to rumble, and then it started
to grumble. My words began to wiggle, and then they did the jiggle. My tongue pushed all of my important words
into my teeth and my volcano erupted! My teacher was less than pleased. She erupted me right back! “I know what you are saying is very important
to you, Louis, but since it is not an emergency, you’ll have to wait until I call on you.” It was my volcano’s fault. At day care, we were sitting on the rug, listening to Miss Polly read us a story about planting trees. All of a sudden I thought about the time my grandpa and I planted six trees in his front yard! Hey Guys once I planted zillions of trees
with my Grandpa and… My important words slid down from my head
onto my tongue. My tummy started to rumble, and then it started
to grumble. My words began to wiggle, and then they did the jiggle. My tongue pushed all of my important words
into my teeth and my volcano erupted! I got a time out. It was my volcano’s fault. During dinner, Mom and Dad were talking about
paying the bills. Then I thought about my friend Bill. Bill can blow a bubble inside of a bubble
when he chews 2 pieces of bubble gum. Now that is really important!! My important words about Bill slid down from
my head onto my tongue. Hey Mom, Bill can blow a bubble in a bubble
with his gum! My tummy started to rumble, and then it started
to grumble. My words began to wiggle, and then they did
the jiggle. My tongue pushed all of my very important
words into my teeth and my volcano erupted! “Louis!” my mom said. “You interrupted AGAIN! If somebody else is talking, and you don’t have an emergency, you have to wait for your tur….” “But Mom! My words…they slide down from my head onto
my tongue, then my tummy starts to rum….” “Louis, you did it again!!!” I got sent to my room. She said I was rude. It was my volcano’s fault! The next day at school was my very important day. I had been waiting for about 126 weeks to
be the “Student Star” of my class. This was My special moment. I got to share a poster with my class that
had pictures of all my favorite things. I stood up in front of my class and began
to tell them about the time I went fishing. Halfway through my story, Richard started to tell everyone about when he went deep-sea fishing in Mexico. His story must have been better than mine
because everyone started to look at him. He was stealing my important words!!!! “Richard,” said my teacher, “you just interrupted Louis. Please wait until he is finished talking,
and then he might call on you.” I couldn’t believe how rude that was of Richard. He erupted ME! That REALLY made me angry. After talking about my fishing trip, I started
to explain the x-ray of my broken arm. Just as I was getting to the good part, Courtney started to tell the class about when she broke her leg. “Courtney,” said my teacher, “you just interrupted Louis. Please wait until he is finished talking,
and then he might call on you.” I couldn’t believe how rude that was of Courtney. She started talking right during my fifteen
minutes of fame! She ruined my important words. She almost stole my moment. When I got home, I told my mom about Rude
Richard and Rude Courtney. “Now you know how we feel when you interrupt
us,” said my mom. “I never thought about that.” “I just get so excited and my words, they
just pop into my head. Then they slide down onto my tongue. My tummy starts to rumble, and then it starts
to grumble. My words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle. Then, my tongue pushes all of my important
words up against my teeth, and I erupt! Words just explode out of my mouth. My mouth is a volcano!!!” “Maybe Richard and Courtney have volcanoes
in their mouths, too,” my mom replied. “I never thought about that.” “Well, son, the next time your ‘important words’ are pushed into your teeth by your tongue, bite down hard and don’t let them out. Then take a deep breath and push your words
out through your nose. Then when it is your turn to talk, take a deep breath and breathe them back into your mouth.” “Will that work?” I asked. “Only if you make it work,” said my mom. That night at the dinner table, my sister Sylvia was in the middle of one of her LONG “girl” stories, when my important words began to slide down from my head and my volcano started to do its thing. Just as my tongue started to push my words
out through my teeth, I bit down really hard. Then I breathed my words out through my nose. As soon as my sister finished talking, I took
a deep breath, and back in went the words. I was amazed that they had just hung around
outside my mouth and didn’t float away. Then I told my story, and nobody got mad at
me for erupting. After that, I never erupted again…well, except for the time Bill’s bubble gum got stuck in my hair. But that was a REAL emergency!

    Hi, I'm wondering how you are able to read these stories in full. Do you choose books that are not copyrighted?

    I have that same feeling too: if only people were more respectful when it comes to letting people explain things. Too bad the Golden Rule kind of lost its shine a bit.
