【少儿英语】101个儿童英语故事 第57期:幸福的家庭——A Happy Family
There was a butterbur leaf in a country of the south.
A lot of butterbur trees with big leaves looked very nice.
A snail was living on a back of a butterbur leaf.
The snail ate the butterbur leaves and lived peacefully moving from one leaf or stem toanother.
Two snails were living on a back of the butterbur leaves.
These two had never been out of the butterbur wood, but they knew that there was a differentworld out of the forest.
Birds always felt impatient when they saw the snails.
“Hey, why are you that lazy? Try to walk faster.”
When the birds complained, one snail said, “That’s because we are not in a hurry.”
“Why don’t you just stop crawling around here and go some other places?”
“We have a roof and it’s full of food here.” “If you like staying here that much, do as you want.”
The short-tempered bird flew away to the sky.
But the snails did not envy the bird that could fly everywhere freely.
“Even she has wings, she has no house, it must be very uncomfortable.”
“If it rains or something scary comes up, how can she hide her head and legs?” The two snailsher felt pity for the bird.
They were just lonely because they were only two.
One day, they found a little snail crying on the back of a butterbur leaf.
“What a pity! What’s happened?” “Hey little snail, where are you from?” The two snails askedthe crying little snail.
The little snail cried and said he was searching for his dad, mom and his brothers for a fewdays.
