The Wind, the Sun, and Simon
By Georgie Adams
One day the Wind and the Sun had an argument.
The Wind said, "I can blow very hard. I'm stronger than you."
The Sun smiled and said, "No, I am stronger than you."
The Wind looked around and saw a boy. He was wearing a coat.
"Look," said the Wind. "Let's make that boy take off his coat. And we'll see which of us is stronger."
The Wind took a deep breath and blew hard.
"Dear me," the boy who was called Simon said. And he buttoned his coat.
Then the Wind blew even harder. This time a storm of hailstones beat down from the clouds.
"Oh help!" cried Simon. He pulled the coat more tightly around him, and started running.
The Wind blew and blew but COULD NOT make the boy take off his coat.
"My turn now," said the Sun.
He shone down out of a bright blue sky. The rays of sunshine touched the boy's face and shoulders, and he felt warm. Simon undid one coat button...
The Sun shone brighter than ever. It grew hotter and hotter.
"I'm much too hot!" said Simon. And he ... TOOK OFF HIS COAT.
"There!" said the Sun to the Wind. "I've won."
The Wind agreed that the Sun was right.
And Simon ran to the fun fair and spent all afternoon on the merry-go-round.
The Sun is stronger than trie Wind.
