The Two Trees By Joanna

The Two Trees

Once, long ago, there was an uninhabited forest. In the forest, all of the trees were alive, but they could not move from where they were rooted. They talked to their neighbors and sent messages from tree to tree in peace for many years.

One day, Two young saplings named Tucker and Luke decided they wanted to see the forest beyond their neighbors. They stretched and stretched, but they could not see beyond a few feet. They were very sad and they wanted to see the rest of the forest very badly.

The next day Tucker thought of something that no tree had ever thought of before. They were going to uproot themselves and walk around on their roots. Luke and Tucker shifted their roots until they were all above ground. All of the trees around them said “What are you doing?!?!”

They said, “We are going to see the rest of the forest! We are going to go to places where no other trees have gone!”

The older trees said, “We wouldn’t do that if we were you! You will fall over and cut your bark and snap your limbs!”

Luke and Tucker replied, “No we won’t! You old trees are just jealous of our wonderful idea!” And they started to walk away.

After a few steps, they both fell. The older trees helped them up and put them back into the ground. Luke and Tucker were happy to stay where they were from then on.

Moral: Think before you do something.

Moral-Be Kind to all and friends are better then enemies

Once there was a big forest where all the animals lived in peace. The animals called the forest The Forest of Peace. They would play with each other and no one was mean to another. In the forest there was a puppy named Amanda. She had dark brown and snow white fur. Amanda lived in the forest with her family. Amanda was the most popular animal in the forest. She was the kindest puppy in the world and everyone liked her.

One day a fox family came to live in the forest. The family had a daughter named Jess. Amanda and her sister, Anne, were playing in a field by her house. Amanda and Anne played in the field when their best friends were away. Jess came to the field one day. Jess had soft, red and brown fur. Her eyes were mean and narrow. Jess looked sinewy and strong. She said, “The field is mine and you two have to leave the field.” When the sisters would not leave Jess growled at them and attacked them. Amanda and Anne were scared of Jess and left.

The sisters found a stream to play in. “The stream is not as good as the field, but it is fine,” said Anne. Amanda looked at the stream and frowned.

“There is no grass or clover patches and we don’t know how to swim,” Amanda pointed out.” Then we will learn,” replied Amanda. The sisters learn to swim, but it was still not the same as the field.

The sisters’ best friends came back. Anne’s best friends are two deer, Jane and Jade. Amanda’s best friends are a squirrel, Elle, and a cat, Kathleen. Anne and Amanda explained why they were not at the field. Elle and Jade said we will not let someone be mean to us like that. All the animals agreed.

Anne and Amanda went back to the field and told Jess you do not own the field. Jess was about to attack when Anne said that we will forgive you and we can be friends if you stop being mean to all the animals.

“Sorry, I acted so mean. At my old home no one was nice to me and no one liked me. I guess I thought the only way was to fight for what I want,” explained Jess. All the animals became friends and everything became normal again. Jess learned a very important lesson, be kind to all and friends are better the enemies.
