Sample of story: Monkey and Rabbit were friends. They often got together just to talk. They liked talking to each other and their friendship was almost perfect except for two small problems. Monkey was fun to be with and always told good stories. From where he sat in the trees he could see all over the forest. He knew what was happening with each of the animals and liked sharing the gossip with rabbit. But he had a bad habit of scratching while he talked. He scratched his head. He scratched his belly. He scratched arms and even scratched his bottom. All the time he talked, he scratched, scratched, scratched. That was one of the problems! All of that scratching annoyed Rabbit. Rabbit ran all over the prairie. He knew what was happening in every den and every hole and in every clump of grass. He was always glad to share the news with his friend, Monkey. Like Monkey, Rabbit told good stories. But also like Monkey, Rabbit had an annoying habit. He always twitched and moved while he talked. He could not sit still. Rabbit was always flopping his ears all over. He kept turning his head around to look behind him. First he'd look one way. Then he'd look the other, and he'd always scrunch and wiggle his nose smelling the air when he talked. All of his wiggling was the second problem. Monkey had trouble looking at Rabbit while he talked to him.
