Gliding birds.
(A number of Eagles as seen from ground, flying in a circle around Lulu with her hands in the air.)

Spinning tops.
(Lulu, eyes shut, hair everywhere, spinning, around her, from head to feet, are dozens of spinning tops of all shapes and sizes)


(Huge eye filling page, tiny girl in front of, looking into it.)

Tennis balls.
(Happy, floppy dog, leaping thorough air, tongue hanging out, for tennis ball)

Cannon balls, shields, sports balls!
