On a hot day, a thirsty crow flew over a field looking for water. For along time, she could not find any. She felt very exhausted, almost giving up. Suddenly, she saw a water jug below her, she flew straight down to see if there was any water inside. It was a surprise because there was some water inside the jug!
The crow tried to push her head into the jug. Sadly, she found that the neck of the jug was too narrow. Then, she tried to push the jug down for the water to flow out but she found that the jug was too heavy.
The crow thought hard for a while. Then looking around her, she saw some pebbles. She suddenly had a good idea. She started picking up the pebbles one by one, dropping each into the jug. As more and more pebbles filled the jug, the water level kept rising. Soon it was high enough for the crow to drink. “It’s working!” she said
