It was a warm, sunny, summer morning. ChuChu came out of the house and looked around the backyard. What a lovely day. I wonder what my friends and I can do to have fun today! I have an idea! I’ll invite all my friends over to make a fort. And when it’s done, we can call it ‘The Happy Fort’. Then we can sit inside the Happy Fort and do happy things. ChuChu called all of her friends. They all came quickly. Everyone was excited. What are we going to do today, ChuChu? We are going to make a fort. And we are going to call it ‘The Happy Fort’. And when it’s ready, we’ll sit inside it and do happy things. ChaCha, Chiku and Chika liked ChuChu’s idea. That sounds fun! We’ll all help make the fort. But Cussly didn’t want to participate. I don’t want to make your fort, ChuChu. I don’t want to sit inside it either. I’ll play my own game instead. Together ChuChu, ChaCha, Chika and Chiku made a wonderful, happy fort. And they had a lot of fun doing it. Cussly, however, didn’t join them. Not even when the others asked him to. Join us, Cussly! Yes, Cussly! We are having fun. No Cussly didn’t join the others. And so ChuChu and the other children made the fort on their own. Soon it was ready. Our Happy Fort is ready! Let’s sit inside it now and do happy things. ChuChu, ChaCha, Chiku and Chika sat inside the fort. They played games and sang some happy songs. Let’s pretend it’s raining! Rain, rain go away Come again another day Baby Taku wants to play Rain, rain go away Sitting outside the fort, Cussly noticed how much fun ChuChu and the others were having. My friends are having so much fun. I wish I had joined them and not been so rude. ChuChu noticed Cussly looking disappointed. And so she suggested to the others that they invite Cussly to join them. ChaCha, Chika, Chiku! I think Cussly’s feeling left out. Let’s invite him into our happy fort. Yes, let’s do that We’d love to have Cussly in our Happy Fort! And so ChuChu, ChaCha, Chika and Chiku invited Cussly into the Happy Fort. Cussly, please join us in our Happy Fort. Come and play and do happy things with us. But I didn’t help make it. Don’t worry, Cussly. Come on in! Yes, come and join the fun. So Cussly joined his friends in the fort. Baking cakes Pat a cake, pat a cake baker’s man Bake me a cake as fast as you can Roll it and pat it and mark it with ‘B’ And put it in the oven for baby and me Cussly had a lot of fun playing in the Happy Fort. He was glad ChuChu and the others had invited him in. That day he decided that he would never be rude again and that he would join in whenever his friends invited him to do something fun. It was a bright sunday morning ChuChu was playing in the park When she heard a strange sound. Who’s making that sound? It must be a little animal that lives in the park. ChuChu looked around and found a squirrel Hello, little one! I am so happy to see you. But you’re not looking very happy. You look like you’re crying. Oh! Your paw is hurt, isn’t it? ChuChu noticed that the squirrel’s paw was injured She immediately picked the squirrel up and took it with her Don’t worry, little one. I’ll take you to someone who will help you feel better. Just as ChuChu was leaving the park, Cussly called out to her. ChuChu! Wait! But ChuChu didn’t hear cussly. ChuChu hurried and took the squirrel to a veterinarian. A veterinarian is a doctor that treats animals. Doctor, I found this squirrel in the park I think its paw is injured. Good work, ChuChu. This squirrel is in a lot of pain Just as ChuChu and the vet were talking, Cussly came in ChuChu! That is my pet squirrel. Give it back to me. I’m sorry, Cussly. I had no idea. I brought the squirrel here because it was crying. Look, its paw is injured. I know that. The squirrel hurt its paw Because it was trying to run away when I was putting it in a cage. Cussly, you shouldn’t have done that! It isn’t nice to hurt little animals, or put them in cages. We can talk about that later, children. First, let’s help this squirrel. The vet carefully put some medicine on the squirrel’s paw. He then wrapped it with a clean bandage In no time, the squirrel looked like it was feeling much better The vet then spoke to Cussly ChuChu is right, Cussly. It isn’t nice to hurt animals. This squirrel was in a lot of pain because of you. And a squirrel’s home is in a tree. Not in a cage ChuChu, I think you should take this little squirrel back to where it belongs ChuChu lovingly carried the squirrel back to the park. She left the squirrel near a tree where some other squirrels were playing You can go home now, little one. Take care. ChuChu then pointed out to Cussly How happy the squirrel looked Cussly, look! Doesn’t the squirrel look happy to be here with its friends? You’re right, ChuChu. I shouldn’t have hurt the squirrel. I promise I won’t hurt any little animal again. Thanks to ChuChu The squirrel was back in the park living happily with its friends. And cussly kept his promise. He never again hurt any little animal.
