Hide and Seek Problems
Once upon a time, three little raccoons named Carter, Lisa, and Rocky decided to play hide and go seek. “Don’t go too far and come back at 7:30pm for supper,” said their mom.
They ran out into the sunny day to look for their friends, Rebecca and Bob. They found their friends in a wheat field. “Do you want to play hide and seek with us?” asked Carter. “For sure!” Rebecca’s whiskers shook with excitement.
The five raccoons ran to a street with lots of trees. Carter counted to twenty while his friends hid. Rocky went to hide in a large trash can. Bob, Lisa and Rebecca scampered to a sewer opening. They crawled in between the grill, wriggling and squashing their fury bodies to get inside. Then they waited. “Oh my gosh, what a great hiding place”, said Lisa. They waited half hour before they realized that their hiding spot was so good, no one could find them! It was starting to get dark.
“We have to get out of here,” said Bob, who was afraid. They tried to get out of the sewer but they were stuck! The little raccoons began to cry. It was almost time for dinner – it was 7:15pm.
Meanwhile, Rocky and Carter went to their moms and told them what happened. Then the mommies came to help search for them. They found them at the sewer, crying. The mommies hooked the raccoons under their arms and pulled them out.
They all went home and ate supper together. Then they went to bed.
