Rainbow Reading Level 4 - People: The New Chief Box A by Wendy Hartmann

A chief has to decide which of his three sons should be the next chief. He sends them up into the hills to see an old woman. On the way they meet a woman and an old man who ask for their help. The older and the middle sons dismiss their requests, but the youngest son is willing to help them. When they reach the old woman, she asks them to put their hands in a big pot and take something out. They each take out a bird, but the youngest son's bird is very small. They return to their father and he asks them to show him what they brought. The youngest son has released his bird. The father decides to make him chief, because he shows the most kindness.
