Shine down on me!
Paint Picture and Story Designed By: Jenn Kalinowski Hobbs

One day a little girl named Sue went walking to the park.  It was a cold day and she longed for the summer days to arrive soon so she could play with her best friend, Sunny the sun.
Sue lived in a quiet little town  and didn't have very many friends.  She wanted Sunny to come out and play on her beautiful playground with her.
 She walked two blocks starring into the sky looking for her friend between the thick white clouds but she still couldn't find Sunny.  She called up into the sky,"Sunny where are you?"  But little Sue still got no response.  When Sue got to the park she sat on the swings and started to move her legs back and forth so she could reach high up into the sky.  Sue swang so high she pushed the clouds away with her hand and kicked the stardust aside to make room for Sunny.  Soon other children joined in and swung so high that they started kicking the clouds out of the way.  Soon with the help of all the other children the clouds were all out of the sky.
  There Sunny came, in one beam, right down on Sue.  Sue jumped off her swing and stretched high up to the sky to say hello to Sunny.  Sunny loved to play with the other children and was so pleased that everyone  helped bring her onto the sky.  Sunny was here to stay for the summer for the two best friends to have lots of fun.
