Adventures in Time Excerpt:
Rain tip-tapped away on the roof, filling the cozy house with a soothing rhythm. The little kitty purred, grateful for the warm hug of Chance the cardboard box. Chance enjoyed the peaceful, serene moment. A low rumble filled the room. The little kitty sat up, ears scanning for another clue. The thunder rumbled again. The little kitty sprang out of the box and scampered down the hall.
Chance smiled, knowing that it was time for another adventure. He heard the boy say, “It’s raining hard today. I don’t know if we should go out exploring.”
The cardboard box wilted, feeling disappointed. Chance really wanted an adventure today.
The girl smiled at her brother and said. “We don’t have to go out to explore.”
