The Crow and the Pitcher

By Aesop, retold by Shimagoma

One day, a crow was flying around and saw a pitcher. When he flew to the pitcher he knew that inside the pitcher the water was too low for him to reach. Then he looked around and saw some pebbles. He took the pebbles and put them into the pitcher. Suddenly the crow saw that when he put a pebble into the pitcher, the water goes up! So the crow took as many pebbles as he can and put them into the pitcher until the water reached his beak. In the end, he was very tired that he drank the whole pitcher of water.  The End.
