    Once upon a time, five little butterflies were born. They were all beautiful, but all different. One was blue, one was green, one was red, one was yellow and the last one had no color at all. Their mother decided to name them Blue, Green, Red, Yellow and Invisible.
    Invisible was a sad little butterfly. She wanted to be like her sisters because they were all bright and shiny. Everyone liked to play with her sisters, but no one played with her. It was not because they did not like her, but because they could not see her.
    One day, she made a plan to become just like her sisters. First, she flew to the sun. She asked, "Mr. Sun, will you please change colors with me so that I can be like my sister Yellow?" Mr. Sun replied, "I'm sorry, but if I did no one could see me. Then it would be dark all the time and that would be very bad. I will give you two drops of my color to make you feel better." Invisible said thank you and flew away.
    Next, she flew to the ocean and asked Mr. Ocean to change colors with her. Mr. Ocean said, "Invisible, I know you want to be like your sister Blue but I can not change colors with you. If I change colors with you no one could see me and then they would not know where to swim. I will give you two drops of my color to make you feel better."
    Invisible said thank you and flew away towards land. When she got to land she saw Mr. Grass. Mr. Grass was looking very bright and green and she thought of her sister. Invisible asked, "Mr. Green, will you please change colors with me so that I may be bright and colorful like my sisters?" Mr. Green explained that he could not because then no one would know where to run and play. Mr. Green told her, "I will give you two drops of my color to make you feel better."
    Invisible saw a red flower in the distance and decided to try one last time to change her color. She flew over to Mrs. Flower and asked her to change colors with her. "I'm sorry, said Mrs. Flower, but I like the way I look and if I had no color the hummingbirds could not see me to get their nectar. I will give you two drops of my color to make you feel better."
    Invisible was still sad that she could not be like her sisters. She flew home and was surprised that everyone was looking at her. She was not use to everyone noticing her. Suddenly her mother came quickly flying up to her. "Invisible," she said, "What happened to you? You are so beautiful. You are yellow, blue, green and red." Invisible could not believe her ears. So, she flew inside to look in the mirror. When she looked in the mirror, she saw the most beautiful butterfly she had ever seen in her life.
    From that day on she was very happy and everywhere she went she was noticed. Invisible was not really invisible anymore.
