A thirsty crow ………… searches water ………… finds a pitcher ………… can't drink ………… the water is low ………… has an idea ………… picks up pebbles in its beak ………… drops them into the pitcher ………… water level rises ………… can drink.

 

Answer:

A thirsty crow

Once upon a time there was a crow. The crow was very thirsty. The crow flew all over the fields searching for water. It was also a very scorching day. He couldn't locate any for a long time. He was exhausted and had almost given up hope. He noticed a water bottle beneath the tree. He swooped down to see whether there was any water within. He became happy and said, "Yes, there was water inside the container!"

The crow attempted to get his head inside the jug. Unfortunately, he discovered that the jug's neck was too small. Then he tried to tilt the jug to let the water out, but it was too heavy.

For a long time, the crow pondered. Then, when he looked about, he noticed several stones. He got a brilliant notion all of a sudden. He began picking up the stones one by one and dropping them into the jug. The water level rose as additional stones were added to the jug. It was soon high enough for the crow to drink. His strategy had succeeded!

Moral: If you think and work hard enough, you can solve any challenge.
