The Old Man Who Loved to Sing

In a quiet valley far from the city lived an old man who loved to sing. When he wasn't singing, he whistled, and when he wasn't whistling, he played music on an old wind-up gramophone.

The animals of the valley learned to love the man and his music, but one day, the music stopped. The old man had forgotten how to sing. And so the animalls of the valley gathered to remind the old man of his true love - music.
