Lesson 10. The lion and the mouse
Listen and read
One day a lion goes for a walk. It’s sunny and hot. He sits under a tree and falls asleep.
A little mouse runs near the tree. She sees the lion “What big ears! What beautiful hair!”
The mouse climbs onto the lion. She runs and jumps on the lion. It’s fun!
The lion opens his eyes. He sees the mouse. “Oh, help! Help!” The mouse is in the lion’s paw! “Please, let me go! I can help you some day!”
“Ha-ha-ha! You are so little! How can you help me?” The lion is kind and lets the mouse go.
Three days later the lion goes for a walk and gets into a net. “Oh,help! Help!”
The mouse runs to the lion and nibbles at the net. The lion is free. He’s happy.
“Thank you, little mouse! You’re a good friend!”
