Panda and Blondie Go to the Beach
“Blondie,” says Panda, “I want to go to the beach!”
“Me, too,” says Blondie, “Let’s go to the beach!”
Blondie finds her hat, her bikini, her floatie, her towel.
Panda finds his cap, his goggles, his shorts, his towel
“But Panda,” says Blondie, “it’s starting to rain.”
“Oh, yes,” says Panda, “that looks like the rain.”
They stand on the veranda, and look out at the rain.
They hold out their paws, and grab onto the rain.
They run from the veranda and dance in the rain.
They jump on the tramp and do flips in the rain.
Then Panda and Blondie get tired and go back
to the veranda, flop down in their chairs, take a nap.
