Little Red High Tops

Once upon a time, there was a young bunny named who loved two things: red high-top sneakers and playing basketball. In fact, wore red high tops so often, the young bunny came to be known as Little Red High Tops. One summer day, Mother Bunny sent Little Red High Tops to basketball camp, "Little Red High Tops, I have a surprise for you!" rushed to where Mother Bunny was packing the young bunny's backpack and shouted excitedly, "Ooo, ooo, what is it? What's my surprise?" Mother Bunny told the bouncing bunny about basketball camp, then Little Red bounced even more! As Mother Bunny gave the backpack and a red basketball jersey, she also gave Little Red a reminder, "Now remember: stay on the sidewalk, go straight to the gym, and don't talk to strange animals." Little Red put on the backpack and ran out the door while shouting back to Mother Bunny, "WOW! Thanks, Mom. See you later!"

was excited about basketball camp, but found the city sights exciting as well. Since Little Red was too busy dribbling the basketball and looking around, the bunny bumped into a strange animal. When Little Red stepped back to check out this animal, the bunny noticed that he was dribbling a basketball, too. "Wow!" thought , "I bet he's a great basketball player! I'd like to ask him for a game, but... I can't talk to strange animals." At the same moment, the other animal was checking out Little Red. "Whoa!" thought the animal, "Check out those cool red high tops! This bunny must be a pro! Should I ask for a game? Oh yeah, Dad said not to talk to strange animals." Both animals sighed and continued walking.

Little Red finally arrived at the gym eager to begin basketball camp. As looked around, the young bunny noticed that the other players weren't wearing red jerseys like his. They were wearing blue jerseys and they were great basketball players as well. Little Red felt disappointed. "That's not my team. But...who's on my team?" wondered. At that very moment, all the animals turned to watch a shadowy figure enter the gym. "Uh-oh!" exclaimed Little Red.

Suddenly, out of the shadows stepped a familiar animal. It was the animal had bumped into on the street! Whose team was the stranger on? Little Red cried out, "It's that guy from the street! Is he on the blue team, too?" As the strange animal emerged from the shadows, realized that the animal was wearing a red jersey just like the bunny's. "Hey! We're on the same team!" they shouted and then began playing basketball together.
