Story Starter #9: Grass is Greener
To turn this vague concept into a book for children, let's ask some "What if" questions.
What if you live in the zoo and wish you lived in one of the other habitats? Maybe the monkey's have more things to climb on or the seals have more space to swim.
What if your mode of transportation is flying but you wish you could swim?
What if you are friends with animals that climb but you are a duck and can't climb trees?
What if your friends all eat worms or bugs and you eat grass?
What if you want to change colors like a Chameleon or play music like a Katydid - but you can't?
What if the humans that you live with are acting like they love their other pet more that you?
You need or want to change something you can do or something you can eat or where you live or play because it looks like the animals that can do that, eat that, live there, or play there are having a lot more fun than you are.
