Read the passage three times and colour a watermelon for each time.

One summer, the forest was dry, as it did not rain. All the trees and plants were dry and the forest looked brown. All the animals felt hot. Many animals moved to another forest. The elephant somehow got water for just one watermelon plant which had only one watermelon in it. A rabbit who had three babies came there in search of food. She saw the watermelon and went near it. “Stop!” said the elephant. The moment the elephant saw her babies, she took pity and gave the watermelon. That night it rained heavily in the forest. Soon the garden was full of vegetables and fruits. The elephant shared them with all.
