Selection:
The Horse and Red Hen

There was a horse that was very tall.


He always said, It is good to be tall.
Oh, how good it is to be tall.
Oh, no, said Red Hen. It is good to
be short. Honestly, it is wonderful to
be short.

Selection:
Let us take a walk and see,
the horse answered back.
They came upon a wall. There
were trees near the wall. The
horse ate and ate the leaves of
the trees while Red Hen just
looked and looked.

Selection:
See, it is good to be tall! I told you so,
the horse said to Red Hen in between big
bites.
Let us walk further and see, said Red
Hen. They came upon a very high wall.
There was a hole at the bottom of the
wall. Red Hen squeezed herself and went
into the vegetable garden. There she ate
and scratched and ate while the horse
waited patiently.

Selection:
See, it is good to be short, Red Hen
said when she joined the horse again.
The horse neighed and then remarked,
You know what I think? I think it is best
to be what you are.
You are right, my friend, crackled Red
Hen happily.
And they became good friends since
then.
