MANILA, Philippines - Beberlin was walking on a grassy lot when suddenly she heard a cute little whisper. She looked out.
She saw a butterfly.
She asked, "Who are you?"
With a cute little voice, the butterfly whispered, “I am Buttery. And who are you?"
"I am Beberlin."
Up and down, around and around, Beberlin and the butterfly went.
Suddenly, Buttery got surprised. It was 5 o’ clock. They rushed home and Beberlin said, “I think it is time for you to go home."
“Bye bye,” said the butterfly to Beberlin.
Beberlin also went home to eat dinner.
The next day, Berberlin and Buttery went to the edge of the river. They saw many trees, shells and crabs.
Then they saw a boat.
Berberlin and Buttery rode the boat and they rowed, rowed, rowed and rowed down the river. They saw trees and Mr. Sun.
And some clouds, too.
