The Monkey and the Camel
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     What fun the animals' party was! The zebras had done a great job with the decorations. The lions and giraffes had put together a tasty buffet. No one knew music like the forest birds. The bears had made clever posters to spread the word to all the animals.
 
2     When the call went up for talent, one of the monkeys hurried out to the dance floor. He was a dancing fool! The birds played some lively music. The monkey danced and flipped and spun. The animals roared their approval. When the music stopped, the animals clapped and shouted. The monkey took a bow and returned to his table. Friends gathered around to shake his hand and rave about his skills.
 
3     The camel saw all the attention the monkey was getting. He wanted some attention for himself. "I can dance too," he told himself. "I will show these animals what I can do!"
