It was a hot day. A little ant was very thirsty. She went to a river to drink water. The ant fell into the water. She cried, “Help! Help!” A dove was sitting in a tree. She heard the ant’s cry. The dove dropped a big leaf into the water. The ant climbed on the leaf. The leaf floated to the river bank. In this way, the ant was saved.

After sometime the ant saw a hunter. He had pointed his arrow at the dove. He wanted to kill it. The ant crawled up the hunter’s foot and bit him. The hunter cried, “Ouch!” and dropped his arrow. The dove was saved.

The ant and the dove helped each other like good friends.
