One day the Color Kids were out walking in a
beautiful green field. The sun was shining brightly and the three friends were talking.
"l worked very hard to make this big field so
colorfuI," said Patty O'Green. "Finding enough
green Star Sprinkles was a big job!"
"And I spent hours finding enough yellow ones to make the sun shine so brightIy," added Canary Yellow. "I hope Rainbow Brite will like it."
Red Butler smiled at the two girls. "I’m sure she will," he
said. "But I don’t know why you had to work so hard. I always have plenty of red Star Sprinkles to deliver at a moment’s notice.
I guess that’s why Rainbow Brite likes me best!"
Just then, Rainbow Brite came riding up on Starlite.
"ls it true?" Canary Yellow and Patty O’Green chimed. "Red Butler says you like him best." The two little girl’s eyes
were full ot tears.
Rainbow Brite saw how hurt they were and she was upset. "Of
course not," she said, looking at Red Butler. "How could you
even say such a thing!"
Red Butler tried to explain, but it just made matters worse.
"Oh, Red Butler!" Rainbow Brite cried. "You and your bragging! Idon’t want to hear another word!" With that, she turned Starlite
around and galloped off.

The two went to work right away, building a big red heart.

finished, they sat down to wait for Rainbow Brite.
Red Butler had almost given up hope when Rainbow Brite and
Starlite came galloping down the path. Starlite saw the red
balloons and came to a halt.
"Look Rainbow Britel" he whinnied, "Red balloons
"Yes," she replied, "and they seem to be leading somewhere.
How curious! Let’s follow them!" Rainbow Brite and Starlite made
their way down the path. ln an instant, they saw the giant red
heart. "Oh, Starlite, look!" Rainbow Brite exclaimed. "lt’s as big
as the sky...and so beautiful!"
"And it has your name on itl" neighed Starlite.
Suddenly, Red Butler and Romeo sprite popped out from behind
the sky-high heart. "Do you like it?" Red Butler asked, hopefully.
"Do I ever!" smiled Rainbow Brite.
"I’m sorry I upset you so," said Red Butler. "Can you ever
"Oh Red Butler! Of course I can!" replied Rainbow Brite, dropping to the ground, laughing and giving him a big hug. "Sometimes you say silly things, but you have a big heart!"
