One hot summer’s morning the four friends Badger, Warthog, Rat and Squirrel were trying to get across The Rapid River. It was an extremely dangerous river to cross but they wanted to know if it was ok to have some lemonade at Racoons house.
“I know” Squirrel said finally, “we’ll build a bridge”.
“A what?” Said Badger.’’
“A bridge! It’s something you go across when you want get to the other side of a river” said Squirrel again. So, the four of them built a bridge. “It’s amazing!” said Warthog and Rat together.
“Was I right, or was I right?” said Squirrel.
“All we need to do now is cross the bridge, right?” said Badger.
“Yes it is” said Squirrel.
Finally, they got to Racoon’s house. “Excuse me Racoon” said Rat. “Is it ok if we have some lemonade?” went on Rat.
“My pleasure” said Racoon. “I make a lot of lemonade on sunny days like these” and the five friends sat down to drink there lemonade and they all lived happily ever after.
