wanted to grow up quickly, but there were one or
two things she had to learn first...
Deep in the middle of a forest far away
was the Kingdom of the Insects.
They were a friendly bunch who worked together to
build a land where
everyone had a purpose.
The spiders spun silky, silvery webs to
decorate the land and fill it with splendour.
The ants, who were immensely strong,
And the bees ran
the honey factories making sure that everyone had
enough delicious honey
The fireflies had a
very special job. Because they could make their
tails glow, they lit up the forest at night time,
so that the other insects could see
in the dark.
after the sun had
sunk below the
trees, they flew
up into the sky
with their tail torches glowing, and
shone like rays of sunshine.
