THE STORY OF THE RAINBOW
Once upon a time in a land far, far away lived a village of blue people. They had blue clothes, blue skin, blue eyes…even their hair was blue. Then one day a little boy wondered into the village after being lost in the woods for days. But he was different than everyone else in the town because he was pink! He had pink eyes, pink skin, pink clothes, pink lips, even his teeth were pink. The town folk had never seen anyone like him before. He was so different…and that frightened them. They immediately hid their children and locked their doors.
The little pink boy sat in the middle of town alone and frightend... shivering of cold and hunger. Then a little blue girl seeing him cry came out from her home and gave the boy a blanket and some food. The town people watched in horror fearing the little girl was now going to turn pink as well. To everyone's suprise nothing happend. She did not turn pink and begin to stink, she did not turn green and become a bean, no she did not. But what she did become was….a friend.
They sat in the park and heard the dogs bark. They climbed trees and watched the bees. They swung on the swings and listened to the birds sing. Soon the entire town was no longer afraid, they all became his friend. They helped him find his way back home and soon became friends with their neighbors in the pink town where he was from. The two towns soon got together and created a purple town, then a red, yellow and even an orange town.
Today when you look up in the sky and see a rainbow, they say it’s the reflection of all the town folk dancing together in celebration as one big happy family!
