Do It Dragonfly
The crickets were hiding under a rock.
The rabbits were deep in their burrows.
The bees were sitting still in their beehive.
And the squirrels were hiding in the hollows of the trees.
The whole forest was silent.
Even the wind held its breath.
Don’t you know that it’s lunch time… for the big, bad bear!
Every day at noon, the bear’s tummy started growling and the bear started prowling looking for some food.
He was a particularly greedy, grumpy bear. He plodded clumsily through the forest looking for his lunch. What did his tummy want today?
A bit of everything?
The forest animals huddled together and closed their eyes as the bear’s nose started sniffing at the air, under the rocks, and in the trees.
The bear started clawing at a hole in the tree, breaking away bark and wood.
“No!” cried the crickets as they watched from under the rock.
The bear turned and snorted; “Mm, crickets. I’ll have you for my dessert!”
The crickets hid deeper under the rock, watching as the bear carried on tearing the tree apart.
It was Dragonfly!
Dragonfly buzzed around the head of the big, bad bear. The bear became so annoyed that he swished his paws in front of his face. But the dragonfly was too fast.
“Do it, Dragonfly!” called the rabbits.
“Do it, Dragonfly!” yelled the bees.
So, Dragonfly did.
Dragonfly buzzed about the bear’s head so much, that the bear started backing away from the tree. He got so fed up, that he finally turned and ran off through the forest!
“Yeah!” The animals were safe. All thanks to Dragonfly.
The rabbits threw a party and they all cried, “Well done, Dragonfly!”
The next day, the animals got up early and enjoyed a quiet morning in the sun.
The bear’s tummy was growling and soon he’d be prowling looking for some food.
The crickets hid under a rock.
The rabbits went deep into their burrows.
The bees sat still in their beehive. And the squirrels disappeared into the hollows of the trees.
The whole forest went silent. Even the wind held its breath.
