Children's Stories

Colored Dirt

Honey, the bear, walked beside the river. She noticed the pretty flowers and different colors of rock and earth. She wasn’t paying attention to where her huge feet were stepping. She tripped on the root of a poplar tree. She fell into the dirt and landed on her tummy and face. She stood up and brushed herself off. While she was doing that, she saw her reflection in the river. She had a lot of dirt on her face. She bent over and looked at her face closer to the water. It looked like she was wearing war paint.


She thought it looked pretty good so she scooped up more dirt into her paw. She rubbed it on her face in a stripe pattern. When she looked at her reflection in the water, she  thought it really did look like war paint.


Feeling quite happy with herself, she left the ‘war paint’ on and continued her walk along the banks of the river. Every time she stopped to admire her reflection in the water, she chuckled. What a silly bear she was.
