The Wind and the Sun argue about who is the strongest. So the Wind challenges the Sun. Who can make the shepherd take off his coat? Is it better to be strong like the Wind or kind like the Sun?
Jack is a shepherd. He lives in the mountains with his two best friends, a brown donkey and a white goat.
Life is quiet in the mountains but one day the Wind and the Sun argue about who is the strongest. So who
can make the shepherd take off his coat, the Wind or the Sun? One thing is certain: It’s better to be kind than unkind.
