Behind a big clump of trees
Baboo and his
mother were having their breakfast
of sweet, ripe strawberries. *
"I am lonely," said Baboo.
"I wish I had someone to play with."
"You must look for a friend," his mother said.
"Where will I look?" asked Baboo.
"Look in the
forest," his mother said,
"There are rabbits and squirrels and a lot more.
They are all looking for friends, too."
So Baboo went out into the forest
looking for a friend.
First, he looked under
a strawberry plant.
Then he peeked under a big log
that was covered with moss.
He tried to be VERY quiet, but
he knocked over a toadstool.
Baboo felt very sad and lonely.
He went down the path
that led to the pond.
Maybe I can find a friend
behind this columbine, he thought.
