The Bugs' Plan
By Kathleen W. Redman
1 "Please come to order," Chip Cricket said.
2 All the insects were talking at one time.
3 "But they are mean to us. Why should we be kind to them?" Buster Bee asked.
4 "Some of them are kind," Betty Butterfly said. "It rained yesterday. My wings got wet. I could not fly. A little girl let me climb on her finger. She put me on a bush. My wings could dry there. No one would step on me."
5 All the insects started talking again.
6 "Please talk one at a time," Chip Cricket said.
7 Billy Bee raised his wing.
8 "Listen to Billy," Chip said.
9 "Someone planted flowers with sweet stuff in them," he buzzed. "There is a lot of food for me. They do not chase me away."
10 "A man found me in his house," Bob Beetle said. "He took me outside. He put me on a plant. He did not hurt me."
11 "The people in the yellow house are kind," Dora and Dan Dragonfly said. "They made a waterfall. Now we can get lots of water."
12 "The woman that lives in the white house put a butterfly house in her tree," Betty said. "It is warm and safe."
