Maria was a girl who loved the water. Everyday she would go to the beach and watch the water. One day, the water decided that he would go to Maria. He tried to climb the sand grains but they were too slippery.He tried to climb the rocks but they were too wobbly.Maria went to the beach the next day and was surprised to see the water moving. She giggled, then whispered, ''You are the waves, pushing and pulling the water.'' The ocean still wants to go see Maria. That is why there are waves.
