Family home was in the shape of a boot. It had a lot of rooms with windows
and anyone who wanted to could live there. Cats, dogs, bears, rabbits,
mice and birds all lived together in harmony.
Cottontail took care of the animals. She cooked their meals, bathed them,
bought them balls, balloons and toy horses. Some days one of them needed a
hug or wanted to be pushed on the swing. Mrs. Cottontail was always there
Mrs. Cottontail had to go to town to take care of her aunt. She sent Miss
Hare over to stay with the animals while she was gone. When two of the
bunnies argued over who the carrot belonged to, Miss Hared took the carrot
away from them and ate it herself. When one of the bears pushed another
down, Miss Hare sent him to his room without supper. Instead of being a
happy home, the Soup Family home was not a very fun place to live.
day Mrs. Cottontail came home. Miss Hare left after telling Mrs.
Cottontail what horrible animals lived there.
Cottontail gathered all the animals around. She gave each of them a hug
and told them she was glad to be home and would never leave them again.
Once again the Soup Family home was the happiest home in the valley.
