Bedtime story

This is Anjali's story for bedtime. I think bunica will especially like to read it.

Once upon a time there was a butterfly. The butterfly wanted to eat the sun. But it was night. So there was no sun. So the butterfly was very sad.
And then it flew to Yomania and gobbled up the sun. And that is the end of the story


But seriously, this is a very nice milestone in story telling - identifying and generalizing the basic elements of a story. A subject, a problem, a feeling, a solution.

And it is interesting that the solution is generalized from the fact that when it is dark in Singapore it is day in Romania.
