She ’ll look foolish. ” Mum said,”You mustn’t say that,Benny!” “What do you know about electricity,Benny?”Dad asked. “Electicity gives us power. It flows through wires. It’s like water, in a way.”said Benny. “You’re right! Electricity comes into our flat through wires. These are connected to cables under the street,”Dad added. “What are the cables connected to ?”asked Benny. “They’re connected to a power station,”answered Dad. A moment later, Daisy came back. “May I have my packet of electricity?”Benny asked. “Here you are!”said Daisy. “But … these are batteries!” said Benny. “Daisy’s right, ” said Dad.”The chemicals inside batteries produce electricity.”
