A child went running to her mother and asked her to tell her a story. But the mother was tired and wanted to rest. So she tore the last page of a magazine that had the picture of the earth. She then tore the page into small equal pieces and told the little girl to solve the puzzle. She intended to get some rest in the meantime and tell the story later.

Soon the girl completed the puzzle and showed it to her mother. Her mother was amazed and asked “How did you complete this in such a short time?”

“Mama, if you look on the other side of the page, you will see a picture of a tree,” the daughter replied. “So when I brought the pieces of the tree together, the whole world came together.”
