Once upon a time, in a vibrant, lush forest, there lived a little bird named Nana. She had feathers as blue as the summer sky and a heart full of curiosity.

One sunny day, Nana decided to fly high and far, farther than she had ever flown before. 'This is fun!' she chirped with glee. She zipped past trees, buzzed by bees, and darted with the breeze.

But soon, Nana found herself in a part of the forest she didn't recognize. The trees looked different, and the colors were strange. 'Oh no! I think I'm lost!' Nana twittered, her tiny heart thumping like a drum.

Drip-drop, drip-drop, the rain began to fall. 'Where can I go?' Nana wondered aloud. Just then, she spotted a wise old owl perched on a crooked branch.

The owl hooted softly, 'Fear not, little Nana. Follow the sound of flowing water. It will lead you back home.' Nana thanked the owl and flew towards the sound of a babbling brook.

She flew over a stream that sparkled like diamonds and sang a sweet lullaby, 'Twit-twoo, follow the blue, twit-twoo, it'll guide you through!' Her spirit lifted, Nana flew faster.

At last, Nana saw familiar woods. She chirped joyfully, 'Home sweet home, here I come!' She swooped down to her nest, where her family was waiting.
