text boxes?

Hi, I was wondering what would be the best method to do this-

I'd like to have it so that when the user taps a text box on the page, a new bit of text appears. I can't seem to get it to work past two text boxes. I've tried putting the boxes in as frames of animation, but the tap to display the next box only works for going from the first box to the second box and not beyond that. Also, I can't get the loop of text boxes to return to the beginning after it reaches the end. How can I make this work?

Thank you

    So you have Text Box 1,2,3,4,5,6 for example.
    Make all Hidden On except for Text Box 1.

    On Text Box 1 Touch Did Begin
    THEN
    Set Hidden On Text Box 1
    Set Hidden Off Text Box 2

    On Text Box 2 Touch Did Begin
    THEN
    Set Hidden On Text Box 2
    Set Hidden Off Text Box 3

    ....

    On Text Box 6 Touch Did Begin
    THEN
    Set Hidden On Text Box 6
    Set Hidden Off Text Box 1

    Or
    You could make an Animation Object, set them as frames
    Turn Looping On
    Then
    On Animation Object Touch Did Begin
    THEN Move Next Frame
