This story is about the North Wind and the Sun. The North Wind is the cold wind that blows in the winter. How strong is the North Wind? Is it stronger than the sun? Let’s start the story.
The North Wind and the Sun
One day, the North Wind blows strong wind at the forest. The North Wind blows the leaves off the trees. The North Wind blows the trees off the ground. The North Wind says, “I am so strong. I am stronger than anyone.” The Sun says, “No, you are not. I am stronger than you.” The North Wind says, “No, I am the strongest.” A man walks on the road. The Sun says, “Do you see that man? You are not the strongest. You can’t even remove the jacket from that man. The North Wind says, “Of course I can!” The North Wind blows strong, cold wind at the man. The man’s jacket moves away from him. But then the man grabs his jacket. The man pulls his jacket closer to himself. The North Wind blows colder and stronger wind at the man. But the man pulls his jacket even closer. Then the Sun says, “Now it’s my turn. I will remove the man’s jacket!” The Sun shines brightly. The sunshine is warm and comfortable. The man opens his jacket. Then the Sun shines stronger. The man feels warm. He removes his hat. The sun shines even stronger. The man feels hot now. He finds a tree. He removes his jacket and sits in the shade of the tree. The end.
The North Wind tries to remove the jacket with strong and cold wind. But the man doesn’t accept it. The man pulls his jacket closer. Then the sun tries to remove the jacket with warm sunshine. The man accepts the warm sunshine, and he removes his jacket. In the story, persuasion is stronger than force.
