For Enzo, the Zee Zees resident beach-goer, it was supposed to be just like every other day this summer - filled with fun in the sun at his favorite sandy spot by the shore. But little did he know, he was about to discover a real surprise. It started out normal enough - he had woken up in the morning and gathered all his beach gear. Sunscreen - check! Hammock - check! Pineapple Tidbits Fruit Cups - check! When he got to the beach though, that's when everything changed. At the entryway, right in his way, stood a giant sign that read, 'Beach Closed for Season. Happy Fall.' Just as Enzo wondered to himself what in the universe 'Fall' was, a cold breeze started to blow and a group of leaves from a nearby tree blew off right into his face. Something weird was definitely going on around here and Enzo was determined to get to the bottom of it. He set out for the one Zee Zee he was sure would be able to give him an answer - Beezy, the Zee Zees' teacher.
On his short journey from the beach to Beezy's, his curiosity about this 'Fall' thing only continued to grow as he encountered even more things that left him scratching his head. He saw kids using long sticks with what looked like metal fingers on the end to move all the yellow, orange, and red leaves that were falling from the trees into big piles. 'That looks like it could be fun,' Enzo thought to himself as he saw several of the kids jumping into the huge piles they had made.
When Enzo finally got to Beezy's front door, he was just about to knock when the door suddenly opened and Beezy greeted him excitedly. 'Oh Enzo, so glad you could make it, you're just in time! Everyone is out back!' He wasn't quite sure what was going on, but Enzo played along and walked around to the backyard where he saw the entire Zee Zees gang joined around a big campfire. As he joined them, he felt the warmth of the fire and felt cozy for the first time all day. Just then, a hush fell over the crowd and Beezy made an announcement; 'I'd like to thank you all for coming to my First Day of Fall Party, I hope you all enjoy yourselves. I have a very special lesson planned for today!'
When Beezy finally finished her lesson on the Earth's different seasons, Mezlo came by and handed him a warm drink that smelled delicious. 'What is this stuff? It's fantastic!' Enzo asked. Mezlo just smiled and replied, 'It's a special Earth recipe that humans drink every Fall called warm apple cider.' Enzo was glad to finally know what was going on. He never knew that Earth had 4 very different seasons. Of course, he was a little sad he couldn't go to the beach anymore this year, but he was also excited to learn more about the other seasons, especially if they were all as fun as the first day of Fall!
