It was a glorious day on the farm. Kay and Gramps watched the sun rays streak across the
sky. The sun crept slowly over the trees. Kay was thankful that she wasn’t lonely on the farm.
She thought her summer was ruined. Kay could not imagine a nicer summer. She really enjoyed
feeling useful. Kay was careful when she yanked weeds from the field. The trip to the farm
would be a happy memory. She couldn’t wait for her dad to come for a visit.

Long ago, giraffes had short necks and unmarked golden fur. They also had loud voices that
were unlike any other animal. But the giraffes became vain about their great voices and their
beautiful color. They bragged about how the lions were unable to see them hiding. The strong
giraffes disliked sharing. They gathered in packs and pushed everyone away from the water.
Soon, the Powerful Sky heard about the noisy bragging giraffes. She listened to the stories
retold again and again. The Powerful Sky was so disappointed that she decided to remake the
giraffes. She told them, “From now on, your fur will have uneven white spots. Your necks will
stretch so you will be unable to reach the water. And your voices will be removed and you will
be unable to speak again.”
