Children's Stories
by Margo Fallis
The Lost Mouse

Baby mouse snuggled closer to his mama. She was warm and cuddly and he loved his mama. After Baby had fallen asleep, Mama ran to gather some sunflower seeds. She knew she'd only be gone a few minutes and felt safe leaving him alone.

While Mama was gone, Baby woke up. "Mama? Mama?" He cried and searched the burrow for her. When he couldn't find her, he crept outside the hole into the dirt. "Wow! Look at all the flowers!" Baby forgot about his mama being gone and ran over to the tulips. He sniffed them. "These are pretty." He saw the daffodils and pulled one over to sniff it. A big black bumblebee was inside the trumpet and buzzed when Baby disturbed it. Baby was so scared that he ran through the flowers. His tiny feet were sore and tired. "Mama?" He called and called for her.

Mama came back to the burrow. "I brought you some sunflower sees, Baby." She dropped them when she noticed he was missing. "Baby? Where are you?"

She ran out of the burrow and searched near the tulips and daffodils. "I have to find Baby. There are cats and raccoons and birds out there. They like eating mice.

Baby ran back the way he'd come and saw the tulips. He sat down and cried. "I want my mama."

Mama heard her baby's cries and ran towards the sound. There sat Baby, hugging one of the tulips. "Baby!"

"Mama!" He ran into her arms.

Instead of taking him back to the burrow Mama thought it best that she tell Baby about some of the things around him. She showed him the sunflowers and told him how they got seeds from it to eat. She told him about cats and birds and how he needed to stay close to the burrow until he was bigger.

They feasted on sunflower seeds and then Baby lay down to take a nap.
