Once there was a school with a Singing Hippo, a Fast, Silly Monkey, a Slow Hopping Bunny and a Judging, Caring Bear. The Judging, Caring bear hang up a poster saying ‘THERE IS GOING TO BE A CONTEST FOR WHOEVER WINS GETS A TROFY, SIGN HERE TO RACE. All the animals signed up, the next day the animals had a race the hopping bunny said,
‘I’m going to win this race fair and square not slowing down’, the silly Monkey said, ‘I don’t think so Bunny, I saw how slow you are your as slow as a snail beating me’, said the fast, silly Monkey.
So the judging, caring Bear shouted,’ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET, GO!’, The silly, Monkey was halfway all around the forest, the fast, hopping Bunny was way behind and catches up to the Monkey,The fast, hopping bunny said in his mind,I have to push myself to the limit, so he pushed and pushed and pushed himself then he was in the lead and he won!
The singing Hippo sang a song for the Bunny since he won and the judging, caring bear gave him a Trofy and a triple-layered ice-cream, to celebrate the Winner he will be principal for the day.
