797. Singing Bamboo: an original short story for kids

Huan and Baba the pandas embark on an adventure in the windy forest to discover the source of a mysterious song.

Narrator: Male

Story Begins: 3:54

Singing Bamboo Excerpt:

It was a particularly windy Autumn day on Ahway Island. The breeze was so strong you could see the trees sway in the distance as sunlight illuminated the fluttering leaves on the dancing branches. Gusts of wind kicked up rocks and pebbles, rolling them down the hill. Loose leaves and branches tumbled about in the air.

In the Animal Sanctuary, Huan panda and Baba panda were relaxing. Huan sat on a ledge on a hill. He gazed out at the trees and admired the vibrant colors of the leaves in their Autumn glory. Vivid shades of cherry and burgundy reds, burnt oranges, sunshine yellows, and mossy greens intermingled with each other on the tree lines above.
