It was the first day of winter and Cub could not sleep. ‘OK,’ said Mum. ‘One more forest walk before bed. Come on…’
‘Why are all the trees undressed?’ asked Cub.
‘So that we can have fun in the leaves!’ answered Mum.
And the snow clouds gathered in the sky.
‘Why are my friends asleep all the time?’ asked Cub.
‘Ssshhh! So that we can laugh at their snoring!’ giggled Mum.
And the first snowflake fell to the ground.
