Chapter 1 Baby Ant
Once upon a time a looong time ago in the deep dark jungle there lived a giant Rhinosaurus. The Rhinosaurus was named Theologis. Theologis loved all the animals in the jungle and all the animals in the jungle loved Theologis.
One day Theologis was out walking with his best friend, Tara. Tara was sitting on Theologis's nose, right behind his giant horn.
They had been walking for a few minutes when it began to rain. It didn't rain very hard. It didn't rain very long. Theologis and Tara stood under a large rock while it rained. When the rain was over, they started to walk again.
Suddenly Tara said, "Stop Theologis, I hear something."
Theologis stopped and listened very closely. He heard someone whimpering. "Hmmm-Hmmm, Hmmm-Hmmm"
Tara hopped to the ground and listened carefully. Theologis listened too. They found a teeny, tiny, little bitty, baby ant sitting on a leaf, crying his eyes out.
