SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

Mac is a good apple. He enjoys sharing with his friends, helping clean up after art class, diving into the watering hole and floating on his back. One day, when Mac was napping in the soft green grass, it started to rain. When he woke up, Mac realized he was not alone. There was a worm named Will attached to him. The two quickly became friends and enjoyed doing many different things together. Will showed Mac how to fly a kite and Mac shows Will how to float in the watering hole.

When the two friends went to the orchard, the other apples said that Mac was rotten and had worms. Will decided to leave one night so Mac could go back to playing with the other apples. However, Mac realized he was sad without Will and went out to search for him. When the friends reunited they realized it was better to be together than alone.
