The Farmer and The Beet

The farmer and the beet story

Once upon a time, a farmer planted a beet. The beet grew and grew.
One day the farmer pulled on the beet, but the beet did not come up. “Horse, please help me pull up this beet. I want to eat it for dinner,” said the farmer. “Sure, I’ll help you,” said the horse. But the beet did not come up.
Then the farmer went to the cow. “dear cow, please help me pull up this beet. I want to eat it for dinner,” said the farmer. “Sure I’ll help,” said the cow. But the beet did not come up. So the farmer went to a goat. “My lovely goat, please help me pull up this beet. I want to eat it for dinner,” said the farmer.”Sure I’ll help,” said the goat. But the beet did not come up.
Next the farmer went to the cat. “Oh my dear cat, please help me pull up this beet. I want to eat it for dinner,” said the farmer.. “Sure I’ll help.” said the cat. But again the beet did not come up. So the farmer went to the mouse. “Lovely mouse, please help me pull up this beet. I want to eat it for dinner,” said the farmer.. “Sure I’ll help.” said the mouse. So the mouse pulled on the cat. The cat pulled on the goat, and the goat pulled on the cow. The cow pulled on the horse, the horse pulled on the farmer, and the farmer pulled on the beet. And the beet came up! “Thank you, horse. Thank you cow. Thank you, goat. Thank you cat. And thank you mouse!” sai the farmer. “Now we can all eat dinner.” And they did.
