Flight of the hummingbird 

 Here's the story of the great forest that caught on fire. The terrible fire raged in burned .
All of the animals were afraid and fled from their homes :the elephant and the tiger, the beaver and the bear.. all ran. And above them the birds flew in a panic.
They huddled at the edge of the forest and watched . All the creatures gathered except one . Only Douk Douk Dim, the little hummingbird would not abandon the forest.
Douk Douk Dim flew quickly to the stream, she picked up a single drop of water in her beak .Douk Douk Dim  flew back  and dropped the drop of water on the fire .
Again , she flew to the stream and brought back another .And so she continued back and forth ,back and forth. The other animals watched Dook Dơuk Dim's tiny body fly  against the enormous fire. They called out to the little hummingbird warning her about the dangers and the smoke and the heat.
" What can I do ?' sobbed  the rabbit, " the fire is much too hot !"
" There's too much smoke " howled the wolf.  
" My wings will burn ,my beak is too small " cried the owl.
But  the little hummingbird persisted. She flew to and fro  picking up more water ,dropping it bit by bit  onto the burning forest .
Finally, the Big Bear said : " Little Douk Douk Dim ,what are you doing without stopping ?"
Douk Douk Dim  looked down at all the animals .She said " I'm doing what I can".
