The Fox and the Grapes
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     The sun shone in the summer sky. It warmed the fox's fur coat. The heat made the fox look for a shady place to rest.
 
2     The fox padded across a field. He entered an orchard. Here were trees that offered shade. The fox panted as he searched for a soft, quiet place to lie down.
 
3     In the middle of the orchard stood a grape arbor. Grape vines grew up to the top and made a ceiling of leaves and grapes. The fox spied a ripe bunch of grapes hanging down in the center of the arbor.
