Rags is a spirited terrier who loves to explore every nook and cranny of the enchanting Bluebell Wood. Always alert, he’s keen to discover what’s around the next bend, ready to spring into action at a moment’s notice. Yet, Rags has been taught by the Guardian to observe without disturbing the peace of the woodland inhabitants. ‘See and walk on,’ he’s reminded, a rule that proves challenging for an energetic pup with boundless curiosity. As Rags learns to navigate the delicate balance of being a respectful visitor in the woods, his adventures become lessons in patience and restraint.

Join Rags on his exploratory walks and help him identify all the creatures that call the Bluebell Wood home. Count the fluttering butterflies, the hopping bunny rabbits, and the industrious bees. Spot the deer hiding in the thicket, the squirrels darting up trees, and the pheasants strutting through the underbrush. Ensure Rags maintains his manners around the grazing sheep, teaching him the importance of being a considerate companion. As the day winds down, tally up Rags’s doggy friends before heading home. This story isn’t just an adventure, it’s a fun counting journey for children, celebrating the natural world and the lessons of kindness and respect it teaches us. Well done, children, and well done, Rags, for a day well spent in the beauty of Bluebell Wood.
