The Lady Beetles Adventure

It was a beautiful day in the Rose garden and Mother lady beetle was Spring cleaning the roses, while the two little beetles played happily amongst the grass.  After some time the older beetle asked his mummy if they could go exploring out into the wide, wide world.  Mother lady beetle was ever so busy so she told them if they remember all of the wise words they had been taught, and would promise to be home before tea,  they could.

So of went the two little beetles into the wide, wide world.  At first they walked very quietly and carefully and before long they were dancing and chattering in the bright sunshine as if they had always gone exploring by themselves.  They were have so much fun until they suddenly came to a stop.  There before them was a shimmery, glistening roundish thing. 

'What is this!' the littlest beetle exclaimed.
'I have never seen anything like it before', said his brother.
Carefully the two little beetles stretched their heads over the top of the shimmery thing and that's when the littlest beetle started to cry and cry, 'I'm trapped, I'm trapped,' he kept shouting over and over between the sobs of fright.

With all this commotion going on a young mother dragonfly flew by to see if everything was okay and as soon as she saw the two beetles she flew down to see if she could help.

'I'm trapped, I'm trapped,' the littlest beetle kept on saying
So once the Young Dragonfly could calm the beetles down she said to them, 'There is nothing that can trap you and keep you from where you need to go, only if you let it.  This is a pond you are looking in, and it only shows you a reflection of what you see.  Never let the fear of the unknown stop you my little beetles.'

Ms Dragonfly took each one in her arms and gave them a hug, 'now my little beetles hop onto my back and I will fly you home to your mother I'm sure she will be waiting for you.'

So Mrs Dragonfly flew them across the garden to the Rose bushes, and sure enough their Mother was waiting for them with a lovely picnic spread out with delicious food under the shade of their beloved roses.

Mrs Dragonfly stayed for tea while the little beetles told their Mother all about their adventure.
