Sunny Solution Excerpt:

It was a sunny day on Ahway Island. The forest was alive with the cheerful songs of birds flitting from branch to branch. A soft breeze whispered through the trees, causing the leaves to dance. It was the kind of day that made you want to close your eyes and let the sunshine wash all over you. This was exactly what Kiwoo lizard had in mind for a day like today. Having woken up to the sun shining brightly through the trees, Kiwoo just knew he had to make a trip out to his favorite sun-bathing rock. The vibrant greenery of the forest and the warmth of the sun promised a perfect day of relaxation.

With a grin and a gleeful hop, Kiwoo set out on his journey. His favorite rock was near the forest pond, and not too far away. As the little lizard strolled through the forest, he couldn’t help imagining what awaited him.  Kiwoo sighed happily.  He pictured himself basking there on his favorite rock – the warmth of the sun on his scales, the gentle forest breeze, the soft splish splash of the pond.
