Gordon's Friends

By Mary Lynn Bushong
1     Gordon stood next to his mother. The wide grasslands went further than he could see. Mom said it was a nice place. Gordon saw a problem. There were no other young elephants like him.
 
2     "But Mom," said Gordon, "Who will I play with?"
 
3     "There are many other animals around," said Mom. "Make friends with them."
 
4     Gordon kept his eyes open. Then he saw some young antelopes. They were jumping up and down on their toes.
 
5     "May I play too?" asked Gordon hopefully.
 
6     The young antelopes stopped jumping. They all stared at him.
 
7     "Your legs are too thick for jumping," said one.
 
8     "You cannot keep up," said another.
