In this poem, Charlie loses access to his favorite activities, panics, and makes an impulsive decision that hurts his sister’s feelings and lands him in time-out.  After some time to think, he eventually realizes that he has a great sister and found things that he can do for fun that he didn’t do before. (Pearson Reading Street, 2010)
