Poppy’s Valentine Lesson

by M. Diane Bairstow

kk-pp-valentine-final

“I do not want to give valentines to the Badger twins!” Poppy, a young white bunny, pouted. “They pull my ears and make fun of me!”

“It is the kind thing to do Poppy.” Madam Colette, Poppy’s human mistress, said as she cut out red paper hearts for Poppy to decorate. “If you give everyone a valentine, no one will feel left out.”

“Humph!” Poppy muttered and kept coloring the valentines.

The next day at school, all the valentines went into a big bowl, and after lunch Miss Blakely handed them out.

Lucy Longwing, the class favorite, got three before Poppy even got one. Then Miss Blakely put a card on Poppy’s desk; it was from Amanda Sue. Poppy watched as Lucy got two more. She felt like crying. Was she only going to get one? But then she got one from Janie Jones and one from Sammy Skunk.

The very last two valentines were for Poppy. She opened them carefully and sighed. They were from the Riley and Ralphie—the Badger twin! Being polite, she turned and smiled at them, and they both waved happily back. Poppy glanced down at their desks and saw that her valentines were the only ones they had.

After class, Riley and Ralphie came running after her. “Poppy, wait for us!” they called.

Oh No! Poppy thought, here they come to torment me.

“Can I carry your books?” Riley asked.

“And walk you home?” Ralphie added.

“OK.” Poppy said hesitantly and handed her books to Riley.

The boys talked her ears off as they walked home, but that was much better than pulling them, and Poppy thought about what Madam Colette often said,  “A small kindness makes a big difference.”
