Just so Story - How the Elephant got Big Ears
Once upon a time there lived a huge, sad Elephant in a big desert. One cold night he dreamed of having big ears so that he could hear what the silly camels were talking about. The next morning the elephant saw the silly camel’s mouths going up and down and he wondered what they were talking about. A while later the elephant went looking for rocks for ears but unfortunately the rocks were too small. He wanted big ears.
After that the silly camels showed the elephant a picture of a fortune teller. The elephant waited and waited for the fortune teller but she never arrived. A while later the elephant saw a shining light from a far distance, he walked towards the light until he fell into a big, grey, hairy hole. It was shaped like an ear.
Everyday he would try to climb out of the big, grey, hairy shaped like an ear hole. Finally he made it out of the hole. He was happy he had got out of the hole. He got a clever idea. He turned the hole into his ears. Now he had big ears. Finally he could hear what the silly camels were talking about and that’s how the elephant got its big ears.
