The Little Mermaid
There is a great kingdom under the sea. Where all the merpeople live and swim free. The king of the mermaids, Poseidon the Great, has six pretty daughters-the youngest is eight.
Her name is Titania. She's golden hair. She likes to hear stories from grandmother fair. She tells her stories of a land far away where people don't swim-they walk, as they say.
"When can I see them? Can we go now?" "When you're sixteen, deer, but not right now.”
So every night, when it's time to sleep, she dreams of this land and then falls a sleep.
A Silly Man
Fred was going to school. When he passed a park, he saw a man sawing a big branch from a tree. The man was on a ladder and the ladder was against the big branch he was sawing. “Hi, it is dangerous.” Fred shouted. “After you cut off the branch, you will fall, too.” But the man didn’t believe him, and said angrily, “Go away, you little thing. It’s none of your business.”
Fred could do nothing, so he left. He didn’t go far before he heard something crashed. He rushed back and found the man lying on the ground.
Fred asked some men for help. They carried the man to the hospital.
The Sports Meeting in the Forest
There are many animals in the forest. Today is a fine day. Animals are having a sport meeting.
Monkey, fox, panda, rabbit and bear are running. Look! Rabbit is the first. Fox and monkey are the second. Bear is the third. The other animals are shouting, “Bear! Come on! Bear! Come on!” And look there, duck and Pig are doing high jump. Pig is too fat, he can’t jump very high. So duck is the champion. Here! Cat and squirrel are climbing a tree. Cat is ill. So he is the last, but he does his best.
This sports meeting is wonderful. The animals are very happy!
A 747 was halfway across the Atlantic when the captain got on the loud speaker:Attention，passengers. We have lost one of our engines，but we can certainly reach London with the three we have left. Unfortunately， we will arrive an hour late as a result.
Shortly thereafter，the passengers heard the captain's voice again:Guess what，folks. We just lost our third engine，but please be assured we can fly with only one. We will now arrive in London three hours late.
At this point，one passenger became furious. For Pete's sake,he shouted，If we lose another engine，we'll be up here all night !
