About little beebi
Where did beebi come from?
Would you like to know where beebi came from? Then come along, and together we will take a look at the South Pole, in icy Antarctica, where his story began.
Do you know how frozen Antarctica can be? Even if you were to turn into ice cream in the freezer, you would never have experienced such a harsh winter anywhere else. And now just imagine that someone wanted to put you in such a winter. Brrr... Of course, it is true that until now you were only hidden in an egg, although, now it would be about time to show yourself to the world in the entire parade of penguins. But who would want to leave a warm egg shell?
Yet that’s what happens to every little penguin when the egg starts to feel too small… So the egg hatches, whether the penguin wants it to or not! However, the penguin's parents are already looking forward to the baby penguin hatching. They cannot wait for it to happen! After all, they took care of that egg.
And so when they first hear the crackling of the egg shell, they get excited and watch with suspense, crack by crack. What will their offspring be like? And who will the baby most resemble? The mother? The father? Will the baby have a beard? And what do these freshly hatched offspring look like?
Ah! It's getting close. Beak, head, wings, paws... Carefully, we see the head, just don’t fall off the ice. And you're entirely out! But you’re so small... Smaller than that snowball, smaller than... We’ll call you beebi! Our little one.
And so it stayed with me. My penguin parents started calling me beebi as soon as they first saw me. My father read a lot and studied languages, and so at first glance I thought of one word, which had been learnt in a certain lesson. And I am now that word. It’s my name. Although I eat a lot and am growing a lot, that changes nothing for my parents, and they will continue to consider me their little beebi.
