All the letters of the alphabet lived in the high branches on the tree.  They loved living on the leaves.  But then a big wind came and the little letters were not strong enough to hold on to the leaves and they were scattered.  When they hid in the bottom of the tree, a word bug came along with a great idea. He knew how they could become stronger and live again on the upper leaves without fear of being blown away.  Can you guess what they did?
