Lia Paris Sleeps in a Zoo
(Austin Macauley, Jan. 31, 2020)
Five-year-old Lia Paris just moved into her own bedroom. Mama thought this was a good time since she was a big sister now. Although she was a bit lonely at first, Lia Paris still had her pink piggy to sleep with. One day, her mama found a sad-looking piggy at a toy store and brought it home, a little companion for pink piggy. Soon, other family members began to bring more stuffed animals for Lia Paris. She couldn't bear to stuff them in the closet, so every night she'd tuck them under her covers and onto her pillow. It wasn't long before her bed began to look like a zoo. And no matter how hard Mama tried to convince her to put some toys away, her little girl just cried and cried at the thought of it...until one night when everything changed.
