Once upon a time, there was a cute little puppy named Maxy. He had big brown eyes and a fluffy tail. Maxy loved going to school and learning new things, but his favorite teacher was Miss Daisy, the horse.
One day, Maxy woke up extra early, and couldn't wait to go to school and see Miss Daisy. He had a special surprise for her, a drawing he had made of her.
When Maxy got to school, he ran straight to Miss Daisy's classroom. But when he got there, she wasn't there. Maxy was confused and asked his friends, Rocky the Rottweiler and Sarah the cat, where Miss Daisy was.
"I heard she's sick," said Rocky. "Oh no," said Maxy. "I wanted to give her my drawing and tell her how much I love her class."
Feeling sad, Maxy went to his own class, but he couldn't focus on the lessons. He missed Miss Daisy's smile and her kind words.
But then, Maxy had an idea. He asked his teacher if he could call Miss Daisy on the phone and tell her how much he missed her.
"Of course," said his teacher, and she dialed Miss Daisy's number. Maxy heard the phone ring and then a voice on the other end.
"Hello?" said Miss Daisy. "Maxy, is that you? I'm so happy to hear from you!"
"Miss Daisy, I miss you," said Maxy. "I made you a drawing and I wanted to give it to you today."
"Oh, Maxy, that's so sweet of you," said Miss Daisy. "I miss you too, and I'm looking forward to seeing your drawing when I come back to school."
Maxy felt happy and relieved. He learned that just because someone is not physically present, doesn't mean you can't still show them that you care and miss them. From then on, Maxy made sure to always keep in touch with his loved ones, even if they're not around.
