Once upon a time, in the forest there lived a baby elephant, who had no friends.
None of the animals wanted to be his friend because he was too large.
One day, a wild fire happened in the forest. The animals ran to safer places. The dry trees caught fire and the fire was sure to go all around the forest. The baby elephant ran to the nearest river, collected much water in his trunk (象鼻) and rushed to the burning trees. He sprayed (喷) the water on the fire. Finally, he put out the fire.
Later, while he was resting after the hard job, all the animals and birds came to him and expressed their thanks for his kind help in time. They were now ready to regard (把……看作) him as their good friend and their hero. They said, "A friend in need is a friend indeed."
The baby elephant was happy to get so many friends and played games with them. He walked through the forest, carrying several small animals and birds on his back.

Once the colors of the world argued. All thought that they were the best and most important.
Green said, "Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and hope. I'm the color of grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would die."
Yellow laughed, "You are all so serious. I bring happiness and warmth into the world. Every time people look at a yellow sunflower, they start to smile. Without me there would be no fun."
Orange shouted, "I am the color of health and strength. I have the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, vegetables and oranges. When I appear in the sky, everyone is shocked at my beauty and nobody gives another thought to any of you."
Red couldn't stand it any longer. "I am the color of danger and bravery. I bring fire into the blood."
Their voices became louder and louder. The thunder got angry and the rain started to pour. When they became calm, the rain said, "You foolish colors. Don't you know that each of you is special? If you don't agree, just follow me." They did as the rain told them and together made the most beautiful rainbow.
