Spring has started and Ellie, the Butterfly and Laila the dragonfly, are playin in the garden, enjoying a wonderful day and a brilliant sun.
Suddenly, while they are playing, they see Duda, the friendly worm, laying on a flower.
ELLIE: Hey!!! Laila, look at Duda!!! Let´s say him hello!!!
LAILA: Brilliant!!! And maybe, he wants to play with us.
Ellie and Laila go next to Duda, who is very quite.
ELLIE AND LAILA: Hello Duda!!! How long!!! How are you?
DUDA: Ummmmm hello.
ELLIE: Uauuu! Duda, what´s the matter?
LAILA: Are you ok?
DUDA: Oh no!!! Not really. I have a terrible cold.
ELLIE: But have you worn your coat last winter?
DUDA: Yes, yes.
LAILA: And your scarf and gloves?
DUDA: Yes, girls, sure.
ELLIE: And have you eaten hot soap and much fruit?
DUDA: Pufff ... no. I only eat apples.
LAILA: Only apples???
ELLIE: But you can not eat only apples?
DUDA: But that is what I like?
LAILA: You have to eat other fruits, like oranges, pears, bananas, kiwis...
DUDA: Are you sure?
ELLIE: By the way of kiwis, The other day I listened to the radio and they said that if you eat a kiwi a day, you never have a cold.
LAILA: Duda, Why don´t you try it?
DUDA: I don´t know. And do you say that all the fruits are tasty and if I eat a kiwi a day a don´t get a cold?
ELLIE: Yes, really, we eat a lot of fruit and look how healthy we are.
DUDA: Ok, I will try!!! Bye girls.
ELLIE AND LAILA: See you soon.
A month later, another sunny day in the garden. Ellie and Laila are playing around the flowers.
LAILA: Ellie, look, it is Duda, let´s go and see him.
ELLIE: Yes, let´s go, and we ask him about his cold.
ELLIE AND LAILA: Hello Duda, How are you?
DUDA: Hello Ellie, hello Laila, I´m very happy. I did what you told me!!!
Now I eat a lot of fruits and they are very very tasty, and I fell wonderful!!!
I eat a kiwi every day, and look at me, my cold has gone!!!
