A Fearful Tale

A ketch was sailing with a fleet of ships when a great
gust of wind came up. The sea became black and choppy,
tossing the big ships as if they were beanbags.

The skipper sat up in his bunk. He felt the rolling of the
sea and could hear the screeching wind. He rang the bell
calling all the mates to the upper deck. Then he quickly
dressed and climbed the deck ladder.

When the skipper came on deck, the wind and rain tore
into him. Hail beat against his cheek. He could barely see
the other ships in the fleet. He grabbed the ropes as the
ketch swung from side to side under the big sea swells.
Waves crashed on the deck, and the planks creaked from
the strain.

Each mate was squinting to see the skipper. They were
speechless with fear as they strained to hear him speak.
Deep inside, they were fearful. No one had seen such a

wild sea before. Thick black clouds hung in the sky, waiting
to dump more rain and hail on the rolling ketch. The men
all wondered if the sea would sweep them off the decks to a
death at sea. Each man was thinking of home and wishing
he could be there, safe and sound.

As the skipper began to speak, a swell lifted up the ketch
and swept it on top of some rocks near the coast. The hull
was split, and the sea came gushing in.

The skipper yelled, “Get to the life rafts!” The men
jumped into the roaring black sea. They reached out
and clung to life rafts that were already floating on the
crashing waves.

They were a lucky bunch. Each man held onto the life
raft until he was close enough to drag himself to shore.
Then the men began to seek shelter from the rain. Some
went to huddle under trees, and some lay under rock cliffs.
Others found a small cave and kept safe there. They all

were picked up after three days. They needed a hot meal
and dry clothes, but were happy to have cheated death.

As the skipper will tell you, the sea can be your best
friend. But it can also be mean and greedy, wanting to grab
and keep those who ride its waves. This time, though, the
greedy sea lost.

Live Your Dream

When James Steel was little, he dreamed of olden times,
when men were brave and bold. He could see himself
roaming strange lands on his big white steed. He called his
steed Wind Sweeper, and she was as swift as the wind. He
would do great deeds.

Sometimes, he would save a fair maiden from danger.
She would give him a kiss and thank him sweetly. He
would not speak. He would just smile proudly.

Sometimes he would help a king and queen. They would
be so grateful to him that they would hand him bags filled
with gold. He would take the gold and give it to people
who needed it more than he did. They would cheer as he
rode off on Wind Sweeper.

When James Steel was a teen, he could see himself
sailing the seas. He would skipper a sleek ship. He called
his ship Wind Sweeper, and it was as swift as the wind. He

and his men would sail Wind Sweeper around the globe.
They would do great deeds.

Sometimes they would save people who had been swept
out to sea. Sometimes they would find people who had
washed up on lonely shores. Other times, he and his mates
would battle against dangerous men who wanted to steal gold
from the queen’s fleet. No matter where they were, people
would cheer when he and his men sailed off on Wind Sweeper.

Such were James Steel’s dreams. When he was a man,
he held onto his dreams of wanting to do great deeds. He
became a teacher. Sometimes when he talked, he would
take his class to olden times. Sometimes he would take
them around the globe. And when he was done speaking,
his class would cheer.

One day, a friend told James, “You really did hold onto
your dreams. You are still doing great deeds and helping
people. That’s what a teacher does!”

Neal was a sweet kid. He was happy with himself when
it came to most things. But he was not happy with his feet.
Neal felt his feet were just so big.

He complained to his mother. “The problem with my
feet,” said Neal, “is that they are as big as boat paddles.
They drive me nuts. Watch me run, Mom. See? I keep
tripping on my big feet. They make me feel creepy.”

Sometimes he would just sit and stare at his feet. “I can
feel them getting bigger,” he would joke. “When will they
stop? When they are as big as boats? Then I won’t fit in
my bed. My feet will stick out from the sheets. They won’t
make sneakers big enough to fit my big feet! People will gasp
when I come flapping my big feet as I walk up the street.”

“Cheer up, Neal,” said his mother. “I don’t see a problem
with your feet. They may have gotten bigger. But the rest of

you will catch up. You are still young. At this rate, you will
be a tall man, like your dad. He loves being tall!”

Neal began to think. “Basketball players are tall. Maybe
I can play basketball some day.” He sat back, lost in a
dream. “I can see myself in a big game. I speed up the lane.
I get the pass. I cut to the basket and dunk the ball with
ease. Score!” Neal leaped up as he spoke.

His mother gave him a gleeful smile. “Way to go,
Champ!” she cheered.

Neal grinned back. He propped his feet up on the chair
beside him. “Well, feet, get as big as you want. We’re
going to play basketball some day!”

“Yes, feet,” said his mother. “But meanwhile, stay off
my chair.” She pushed Neal’s feet off the chair as she
winked at him.

A Bee and a Flea

A mean old bee and a sleepy flea
Had made a plan to come get me!
The bee said, “I’ll sting you and make you yell!”
The flea said, “I’ll bite you. You’ll itch and swell!”
Then I said, “But wait! Let’s play hide-and-seek.
I will go and hide. You can seek all week!”
So off I ran in a cloud of dust.
The bee couldn’t see, and the dusty flea fussed.
I ran and ran, I was fleet as a deer.
The bee and flea were gaining. I was filled with fear.
I climbed up a pine tree, and there I hid.
Both of them gave up on me. They really did!
I grinned, sang, and hummed. I was happy to be free.
But listen, can you help me get out of this tree?
