Once there was a boy named Jack and a girl named Jill who lived in a farm. They were brother and sister. One day their mother asked them to go up the hill and get a pail of water from the well there. While climbing up, Jack and Jill found that the hill side was very steep. When they were half way up, Jack hit a rock and started tumbling down. When Jill saw him slipping down, she ran after him to help. She caught hold of his brother’s hand and started pulling him up. But Jack was very heavy for her. She started slipping down with him. They both went tumbling down and reached the bottom of the hill. Jill started to cry and wanted to go home. But Jack said, “Crying will not help. It’s okay. Such things happen. Let us not give up.” So they both got up and began climbing again. They tried very hard and at last reached the top. Then they filled the pail with cool, well water. They both lifted the bucket and carefully walked down the hill. Mother was very happy when they gave the bucket of water to her.
