Fun at School

Off we go…

What Are Long Necks For?

“Here we are! Out you go!
Have a good time!”

One by one the boys and girls
tumbled out. Away they ran
to have a look at what was inside.

“I’ve always wanted to come here,”
said Bill.

“So have I,” answered Jim.
Let’s get up closer. I want to have
a good look.”

“Look at the bears!” shouted Cathy.
“I like bears, don’t you?”

“Are they playing something?” asked Pat.

“I don’t think so, Pat. I think they’re fighting,” answered Cathy.
“Bears always want fish.
Look at that one take a tumble!
I like this!”

“So do I,” said Pat.

Pat heard some chattering nearby and
he went to see what it was.
It was the monkeys –
the chattering monkeys!

Hello, monkeys.
Do you always chatter like that?
What are you chattering about?
It sounds funny.
Look out, monkey! Don’t tumble!
Look where you’re going!
Why are you looking at me like that?
Are you chattering about me?

Chapter 38 / Page 76 (September 2023)

Pat saw some tigers there too.
When he went by they made some angry sounds.

Don’t look at me like that, Tiger.
Why can’t you be happy?
The chattering monkeys are.
I don’t think you like me!
Are you always so angry?
It’s a good thing you’re on the inside.
Your baby tigers love to tumble and play.
Don’t you? I guess not.
Good-bye. I’m going!

… To be continued next month!
