A little black sheep was playing one day,
On a hill far away.
The sun was shining and the grass was green,
And the little black sheep was happy and carefree.
Suddenly, a big white sheep appeared on the horizon.
The little black sheep stopped playing and watched as the white sheep approached.
The white sheep said, “Hello, little black sheep.
Why are you so black?”
The little black sheep replied, “I don’t know.
I was born this way.”
The white sheep said, “You should be ashamed of yourself.
Black is the color of evil.
The little black sheep didn’t know what to say.
He had never thought about it before.
The white sheep continued, “You should be white like me.
Then you would be beautiful.”
The little black sheep thought about this for a while.
Then he said, “I don’t want to be white.
I like being black.”
The white sheep was shocked.
She had never met a black sheep who didn’t want to be white.
She said, “You’re different from all the other black sheep.
I like you.”
The little black sheep was happy.
He had found a friend who liked him just the way he was.
