Soccer Fun

It was a beautiful day in the forest. Little Bear just finished eating a ton of wild blueberries. He started dancing and he was having so much fun that he didn’t see a bee flying around him. However, he did hear the bee.

“Hi Bee,” said Little Bear. “Would you like to dance?”

“You know I don’t dance,” said Bee.

“How about playing soccer with me?” asked Little Bear, kicking his soccer ball out from behind a tree. “Look, we can kick it far and chase it. We could have so much fun.”

“You know I don’t play soccer,” said Bee. “However, it does sound like fun. I would love to watch you play.”

“I don’t see why you can’t play with me?” asked Little Bear, sulking.

“For one,” said Bee. “I am so much smaller than you or the soccer ball. I could get hurt.”

Little Bear happened to see some blueberries laying on the ground. He picked one up and threw it up in the air.

“Catch it!” cried Little Bear, smiling from ear to ear.

“That blueberry is just the right size for me to play soccer,” said Bee, laughing, while she caught the blueberry with her front legs. “This is so much fun! I love this. Thank you Little Bear for finding a way that I could play soccer with you without getting hurt!”

“You are welcome,” said Little Bear. “Now I have someone who will play soccer with me!”

“Yes indeed,” said Bee.

Little Bear and Bee had so much fun playing soccer together.

“Thank you,” said Bee. “That was so much fun.”

The next day, Bee met Little Bear in the forest again and they played another game of soccer. They had so much fun that whenever they got together, they would play a game of soccer.


 

Moral of this Story:

  • There are always alternative ways of playing with disadvantaged friends.
  • Example: Little Bear wanted to play soccer with Bee but she explained to Little Bear that the ball was so much bigger than she was and that she would end up getting hurt. Little Bear found something smaller that they could play soccer with.
