Rose is very tired


Anemone tells Rose about many other things she knows.

For instance why butterflies and bees make honey for us.

And how, by hearing a tune you can make out the bird.

Rose tries to pay attention but she’s fighting against sleep

by rubbing her eyes, because they are pricking right now.


‘Oh dear, you're about to fall asleep,’ says Anemone,

when she sees Rose rubbing her eyes. ‘We shouldn’t stay

much longer, you’re very tired.’ Together they walk back

to where the others are, so that Rose can say

good bye to everyone, because she just wants to be polite.
