Way out in the desert by the palo verde tree, lived a mother javelina and her little piggies three. "Snooze!" said the mother. "We snooze!" said the three. Because they rooted all night by the palo verde tree.

Somewhere in the ocean where the water shimmered late, lived a mother sea turtle and her baby turtles eight. "Paddle!" said the mother. "We paddle!" said the eight. So they paddled in the moonlight where the water shimmered late.

Over in the garden where the sunflowers grew, 
lived a mother ladybug and her little beetles TWO.
"Crawl!" said the mother.
"We crawl!" said the two.
So they crawled over petals where the sunflowers grew.

Way up in the Arctic near the chilly waters blue,
lived a mother polar bear and her little cubs TWO.

"Nap!" said the mother.
"We nap!" said the two.

So they napped and they dozed near the chilly waters blue.
