Rhino, Giraffe and The Beaver
Once upon a time there were
three little animals and they all had a problem. Well at least they thought
they did. Here is how the story goes.
There was a forest fairy and
she was flying around checking on all the animals to see if they were okay.
All of a sudden she heard someone crying. She looked down and poor Rhino was
so sad. She asked him what was wrong. He said because of my big nose ,
no one wants to play with me. They just laugh at me. The fairy said don't
worry the day will come when they will all love you and welcome you to play
with them and she sprinkled fairy dust upon his head and flew away.
Well as she went along she
heard crying again and looked down and there was a very tall Giraffe.
He was so sad also, What's the matter she ask, and he said because I am so
big and my neck is so long the rest of the animals will not play with me.
The fairy said don't be sad the day will come when they will all love you
and will play with you. She sprinkled fairy dust upon his head and
She thought everything was
okay and again she heard crying and she looked down and there he was,
a sad little Beaver, he was so unhappy. What's the matter she ask, and
Beaver said because my tail is so wide and big the animals won't play with
me, they say I make to much noise. Well, said the little fairy don't
worry the day will come when they will all love you and want to play with
you. She sprinkled fairy dust on him and flew away. It seem to be a very
peaceful day in the forest and all was quiet and the beaver and the giraffe
and the Rhino were all just sitting and talking with each other. The
other animals were off playing with each other.
Well the day came and the
Rhino smelled smoke but he couldn't see where it was. He said I am not
tall enough to see where the fire is but the giraffe saw the small
fire. What are we going to do when we get there said the Rhino, but
they remembered what the fairy said. They all three ran as fast as they
could, the poor animals in the forest were running to and fro not knowing
where to hide to get away. The Giraffe told the Rhino where it was and
they all three ran as fast as they could. When they got there
the beaver started beating it with his large tail and put out the fire. You
see they all worked together as a team and put out the fire in the
forest, saving all the animals. The Rhino smelled the smoke with his
large nose and the Giraffe saw it with his long neck and the Beaver put it
out with his large tail.
Well the other animals saw
this and they gathered around them and told them how sorry they were and
should have known we are all like we are for a reason. The Rhinos big nose
smelled the smoke and the Giraffe's long neck helped him to see where it
was, and the Beavers big tail put out the fire. Now all the animals in
the forest wanted to be friends with them and they were all happy. We are
never to judge anyone by their appearance, we are all created for a reason.
