A Child's Story: Junior Alligator Hero
A Child's Story : Junior Alligator , Hero
Once upon a time there was a great forest.In the middle
of the forest there was a large swamp, can you guess what
was in the middle of that swamp?It was an alligator family.
There was Daddy Alligator , a large ferocious looking
creature, Mommy Alligator ,almost as ferocious looking,
then there was Baby Alligator .He resembled his father
too much to make any friends..
Now poor Junior Alligator was a lonesome little fellow.
He had no friends at all . Day after day after day it was
all the same.It was hard to amuse oneself all of the time.
In that forest there was a lot of animals .The young of
the families would have played with Junior,but they ,too,
had Mommies and Daddies . They always warned "Play
as much as you like but don't ever go near the water."
The children didn't like that very well and grumbled."I'm
not afraid of any old alligator,"bragged Teddy Bear.Even
Susie Rabbit said timidly,"I don't think they are as mean as
Teddy said ,importantly,"Let's go and try to make friends
with Junior Alligator."
The other children looked at each other ,they all wanted
to go but was afraid to disobey their parents. Teddy was a
little upset and told them smartly, "All right ,you 'fraidy cats
stay here,I'll go by myself."
So he started off bravely toward the swamp,but soon he
was walking slower and slower,all the while he was fuming to
himself,"Why do I always have to open my big mouth?."
Junior Alligator saw Teddy coming and he hurried to tell his
Mother and Father the good news.He was going to have
someone to play with at long last, They all hurried to see
who was brave enough to come to the swamp. They
opened their big mouths to call out a welcome to their
visitor, but poor Teddy didn't understand, he thought
how fast those big jaws could devour him and he
turned and he ran as fast as his little legs could carry
