Once upon a time, in a cozy little burrow, lived Bella the Bunny. Bella had soft, white fur and the biggest curiosity in all the forest.
One sunny morning, Bella hopped out of her burrow and saw something shiny in the distance. “I wonder what that is?” Bella thought.
She hopped and hopped until she reached a sparkling stream. On the other side of the stream was a field of colorful flowers.
“I want to see those flowers up close,” Bella said to herself. But there was a problem – the stream was too wide for her to jump over.
Bella sat down, thinking hard.
Just then, her friend Sammy the Squirrel appeared. “Hi, Bella! What are you thinking about?” Sammy asked. Bella shared her wish to see the flowers on the other side.
“Let’s work together,” Sammy said with a smile. He found a long stick, and Bella held one end while Sammy held the other. They put the stick over the stream, and Bella carefully hopped across, one hop at a time.
When they reached the colorful flowers, Bella felt so happy. She smelled each flower and giggled as a butterfly danced around her.
But as the sun started to set, Bella realized it was time to go home.
“Oh no, how will we get back?” Bella wondered aloud. Sammy thought for a moment and then said, “Don’t worry, Bella. We can use the stick to make a bridge and cross the stream again.”
Bella and Sammy placed the stick over the stream, and this time, Bella hopped back over with a big smile on her face. As the sun dipped below the horizon, they hurried back to Bella’s burrow.
Bella snuggled into her cozy burrow and sighed happily. “Thank you, Sammy, for helping me have the best adventure,” she said.
“You’re welcome, Bella. Goodnight!” Sammy replied.
And so, Bella the Bunny closed her eyes, dreaming of colourful flowers and the wonderful adventures that awaited her in the meadow.
