Lion & Tiger & Bear Tag! You're it! by Getty Images, Ethan Long

Lion, Tiger, and Bear are best friends. One day, Tiger and Bear want to play a game of tag, but Lion doesn't want to be disturbed; instead, he wants some quiet time to work on a painting. Tiger and Bear try to entice Lion to play, but their antics only have the opposite effect--what does a lion have to do to find some peace and quiet? In the end, Lion has a surprise for his friends after they exercise some patience, and each learns why it's important to have both quiet time and playtime.
