A Sunny Hippo

“I am very sad because of the rain,” said Harvey Hippo. “This has been such a rainy spring.”

Harvey Hippo decided to do something to get his mind off the rain. He decided it would be a good day to do some cleaning that he had been putting off.

“A rainy day is a good day for getting some of those indoor cleaning chores done,” said Harvey Hippo, taking the broom and sweeping out his stall.

Harvey Hippo was so immersed with cleaning that for a moment, he didn’t see the streak of sunshine that came through the window.

“Oh will you look at that,” said Harvey Hippo, finally seeing the streak of sunshine. “The sun is finally shining!”

Harvey Hippo dropped the broom and he ran outside as fast as he could go.

“Oh the sunshine is so beautiful,” said Harvey Hippo, thoroughly enjoying the sun.

Harvey Hippo laughed and danced. He had so much fun. He stayed outside until the sun had completely gone down that evening. He slept so good that night. For the next week and a half he enjoyed nice, warm, sunny spring days. He loved it. The sunshine put him in such a good mood, too.


Moral of this Story:

  • Sunshine is very important for our well-being.
  • Example: Harvey Hippo was tired of the rain but when he saw the sun was out, he was so happy.
