If you were… #children #fiction

If you were a butterfly would you be friends with a lion??? I didn’t think so. Personally,I wouldn’t either.  We know a lion who saved a butterfly while she was still in her chrysalis and she saw something about him that others didn’t. Now this butterfly and (domesticated) lion go about the villages of UgandaContinue reading “If you were… #children #fiction”

The boy’s hands had been frozen cold by the snow. He shivered wondering if he had the strength to return home, but he must mother needed the food. He imagined the warmth of a blazing fire.
