A lost baby cricket is crying.一只丢失的蟋蟀在哭。
But all he can hear is the sound of the wind. 但他能听到的只有风的声音
The grass sways in the wind.草在风中摇摆。
The wind was creating a cloud of dust. 风吹起了一团尘土。
It looks like it's going to rain. 看来要下雨了。
It's raining from the sky. 天上下着雨。
The rain has stopped. Across the grass, the baby cricket hears a familiar sound.
“Oh, that’s my mom!”“哦，那是我妈妈！”
“The baby cricket is finally with his mom.” 小蟋蟀终于和妈妈在一起了。”
All the insects sing a celebration song. 所有的昆虫都唱了一首庆典歌。
A New Bike——一辆新自行车
I got a new bike. It is fast. I like it.
Ho! Ho! I got a new car. It is faster than your bike. Your bike is too slow.
Ha! Ha! I got a new motorcycle. It is faster than your car. Your car is too slow.
He! He! I got a new airplane. It is faster than your motorcycle. Your motorcycle is too slow.
I got a new rocket. It is faster than your airplane. Your airplane is too slow. My rocket is the fastest.
The airplane is slower than the rocket. The motorcycle is slower than the airplane.
The car is slower than the motorcycle. And, my bike is slower than the car. My bike is the slowest.
But, I don‟t care! I got a new yellow bike. And, I like it.
The Ant and the Dove——蚂蚁与鸽子
An ant went to the bank of a river, to quench its thirst, and being carried away by the rush of the stream, was on the point of drowning.
A dove sitting on a tree over hanging the water plucked a leave and let it fall into the stream close to her.
The ant climbed onto it and floated in safety to the bank.
Shortly afterwards, a bird-catcher came and stood under the tree, and laid his lime-twigs for the dove which sat in the branches.
The ant perceiving his design, stung him in the foot.
In pain, the bird-catcher throw down the twigs, and the noise made the dove take wing. One good turn deserves another.
