In the Small World

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Lily who loved to play with her toy animals. She had a whole zoo of animals, from lions and tigers to elephants and giraffes. One day, Lily was playing with her animals when she had an idea. She decided to make a small world for her animals to live in.

Lily went to her room and got a big box. She filled the box with sand and dirt, and then she started to add her animals. She put the lions in the jungle, the tigers in the forest, and the elephants in the savanna. She even put a little pond in the middle of the world for the giraffes to drink from.

Lily was so happy with her small world. She played with it every day, and she even invited her friends over to play with it too. They all had a lot of fun pretending to be the animals in the small world.

One day, Lily was playing with her small world when she heard a noise. She looked up and saw a little boy standing in the doorway.

“What’s that?” the boy asked.

“It’s my small world,” Lily said. “I made it for my toy animals.”

“Can I play with it?” the boy asked.

“Sure,” Lily said. “But be careful not to break anything.”

The boy smiled and started to play with the small world. He made the animals talk to each other, and he even made them build a house. Lily and the boy had a lot of fun playing together, and they became good friends.

The next day, Lily and the boy came back to play with the small world. But when they got to Lily’s room, they saw that it was gone.

“Where is it?” Lily asked.

“I don’t know,” the boy said. “I thought it was here.”

Lily and the boy looked all over for the small world, but they couldn’t find it. They were very sad, and they didn’t know what to do.

The next day, Lily was playing in the backyard when she saw something in the bushes. She went over to take a closer look, and she saw that it was her small world!

Lily was so happy to find her small world. She ran inside to show the boy.

“Look!” Lily said. “I found it!”

The boy was so happy too. He and Lily played with the small world all day long.

Lily and the boy continued to play with the small world for many years. They had many adventures together, and they learned a lot about each other. The small world was a special place for them, and it brought them a lot of joy.
