The Ant and the Dove

On his way home, an ant saw a sparkling fountain. He crawled on to its wall to take a closer look. Suddenly he slipped and fell into the water. He gurgled and panicked and waved his legs in the air. “Help! I can’t swim,” he cried. Luckily, just at that moment, a friendly dove flew by. She saw that the tiny ant was drowning and quickly flew to a nearby tree. She pulled off a leaf and let it glide down to the ant. “Here you are,” she cooed, and flew away.
