Caps for sale

Long, long ago in a small town lived a man. He sold caps. He had a lot of caps for sale. The caps were brown and white, gray and red. His own cap was black.

So he had a lot of caps for sale, and he carried them on his head.

First he had on his own his black cap, then the brown caps, then the white caps, then the gray caps, and then the red caps.

He walked up and down the streets, and he called “Caps! Caps for sale! Ten pennies a cap!”

One day he walked up the street and he walked down the street, and he called, “Caps! Caps for sale! Ten pennies a cap!”

But nobody wanted his caps that day. Nobody wanted even a red cap.

The man was very hungry, but he had no money for dinner. “I shall go for a walk!” said he.

And he walked and walked and came to a big tree.

That is nice place for a rest” said he.

And he sat down under the tree. All his caps were on his head – his own black cap, then the brown caps, then the white caps, then the gray caps, and then the red caps. They were all there. So he went to sleep.

He slept for a long time.

When he woke up, he touched his head with his hand. All he touched was his own black cap.

He looked to the right of him. He looked to the left of him. No caps. He looked behind the tree. No caps. Then he looked up into the tree. And what do you think he saw?

He saw a lot of monkeys in the tree. The monkeys sat there. On every monkey was a brown, or a white, or a gray, or a red cap!

The man looked at the monkeys. The monkeys looked at the man. He didn’t know what to do.

Then he said “You monkeys! You must give me back my caps”

And he shook a finger at them.

But the monkeys only shook their fingers back at him and said “Tsz, tsz, tsz”

The man got angry, so he shook both hands at them and said “you monkeys, you! You must give back my caps”

But the monkeys only shook their fingers back at him and said “Tsz, tsz, tsz”

At last he got very, very angry. He took off his own cap and threw it on the ground.

Then each monkey took off his cap and threw it on the ground, too.

The man was very glad when he saw all his caps on the ground.

So he picked up his caps and put them back on his head – first his own black cap, then the brown caps, then the white caps, then the gray caps, and then the red caps.

Then he walked back to town, and he called “Caps! Caps for sale! Ten pennies a cap!”









The brave hunter

Little Brave Heart was not very big, and he was not very small. He was a brave little Indian boy. He wanted to be a brave hunter.

So early one morning Little Brave Heart put on his shirt and trousers. And he took his bow and arrow, and went to the big green wood.

He walked and walked and came to a big lake. There were a lot of flowers near that lake. They were blue, red, white and yellow. Little Brave Heart wanted to pick some flowers.

But suddenly he saw a gray mouse in the green grass. The mouse was very small.

Little Brave heart took his bow and arrow.

Wait!” cried the mouse. “don’t kill me! I am very small for brave hunter like you. I know where there is a big wild cat. Come with me”

So Little Brave Heart went with the mouse. They walked and walked and came to a big tree. There Little Brave Heart saw a wild cat with big green eyes.

The cat was sitting under the tree.

Little Brave Heart took his bow and arrow.

Wait a minute” said the wild cat. “don’t kill me, I am very small. I will show you where there is a big wild dog. Come with me”

So Little Brave Heart went with wild cat. They walked and walked and came to a big den. The wild dog was sitting near the den.

Little Brave Heart took his bow and arrow.

Wait a minute” said the wild dog. “Don’t kill me I am your friend. You must kill a big bad wolf. He lives in that woods. I shall show you the way. Come with me”

Little Brave Heart ran after the wild dog.

Suddenly the wild dog stopped. Little Brave Heart stopped too.

They saw a big bad wolf.

Little Brave Heart took his bow and arrow.

oh, brave hunter” said the wolf. “don’t kill me. I am very old, and I am very hungry. You must kill a big brown bear. Go to those big trees, and there you will see him. I am very old. I can’t go with you. Good – bye!”

So Little Brave Heart went alone. He looked to the right. He looked to the left. Suddenly he stopped. He saw a big brown bear with two little bears.

Little Brave Heart took his bow and arrow.

Stop!” cried the big bear. “ Why do you want to kill me, bad boy? Are you cold? Do you want fur?”

no – o” said Little Brave Heart. “I am not cold”

Are you hungry then?”

No, oh no. I am not hungry. I am hunting just for fun”

Hunting for fun!” cried the big bear. “ I hunt only when I am hungry. And I am hungry now!”

The big bear was very angry.

Little Brave Heart dropped his bow. He dropped his arrow too. Then he ran as quickly as he could.

He ran and rand ran …








Small clown

«Pete! Pete! get up, Pete!”

Pete opened one eye. He opened two eyes. And he jumped out of bed.

I am coming, mother” he said. “I am coming. I am coming. I am coming” and he laughed.

Today was his birthday, and he was eight.

He sang a song: “I am eight, I am eight, I am eight. Today I am eight”

And he was glad.

His father was the best Clown in the Circus. Pete wanted to be a clown too.

So it was Pete’s birthday. His mother kissed him and gave him a big birthday breakfast. There were a lot of sweets on the table. His father kissed him too and gave him a big birthday present. It was a small clown dress and two small clown shoes.

Pete jumped up and jumped down and laughed and laughed and laughed, because now he could be a small clown and do his small clown tricks for all the people who came to see the Circus.

Pete kissed is father. He kissed his mother and said, “ Mother, may I put on my clown dress and my clown shoes now?”

Bur Mother said “no, you will put them on in the morning”

So Pete put his dress and his shoes on his bed and went to see the Circus Animals and the Circus People.

When he came to the Circus, he went to the Lion in his cage and the big Cats in their cages and the Giraffe with her tall neck. Then he went to the fat Lady and the Thin Man and the Horses Lady and her Horse and the Circus man and the Clowns, and to all the circus People, and said “ Today I am eight, and I will be a clown”

And the Circus People said to Pete “Happy Birthday, Pete”

But the Circus Man in his big tall hat did not say a word. He did now wish Pete Happy Birthday. He opened his mouth and said “You cannot be a clown. You are very small. You cannot do clown tricks”

Pete was very unhappy. He could not say a word.

And all the Circus People looked at him.

At last Pete said “Please!” and all the Circus People said “Please!”

Pete stood very still, and the Circus People stood still. Then the Circus Man said “ Very well! You will be a clown today and show the people your small clown tricks”

Pete said “Thank you, thank you, sir”

In the evening Pete said “” Come , help me, Mother, come, help me to put on my small clown dress and my small clown shoes and my small clown face”

But Mother said “ You are big boy now, Pete. You can put on your dress and shoes”

Then Pete put on his small clown dress and his small clown face.

Suddenly his father cried “ Pete! Pete! Come on Pete. The Circus is waiting for you”

Pete cried “ I am coming, I am coming, I am coming. I must only put on my small clown shoes”

Then he put one small clown shoe on his right foot very quickly, and he put his other small clown shoe on his left foot.

At last he ran to the Big Clowns.

Then the Circus man said “HERE COME CLOWNS!”

The people laughed and clapped hands and laughed when the Clowns did their big clown tricks.

When people saw Pete, they laughed and clapped and clapped and laughed too, because Pete looked so sad.

He was sad, because his feet hurt. They hurt so much that he could not do his small clown tricks.

Pete saw the Circus Man in his big tall hat. And the Circus Man was not laughing. He saw the Circus Animals and the Circus People , and they were not laughing, because Pete was not doing his small clown tricks.

The people sat very still. They were waiting for small clown tricks. But Pete could not do even one small tricks. His feet hurt. He was very unhappy. What could he do?

But suddenly he looked down at his feet, and he saw why they hurt. He saw his left clown shoe on his right foot and his right clown shoe on his left foot.

Pete sat down on the floor, and he took off the clown shoe, and he took off the other clown shoe. He put his left down shoe on his left foot and his right clown shoe on his right foot.

Then he stood up quickly and began to run, to jump and to dance. He did all his funny clown tricks.

And the people laughed and clapped hands and laughed.

When the Circus was over, all the Circus People said “HURRA FOR PETE! HE IS THE BEST SMALL CLOWN IN THE CIRCUS!”










The paper – bag mystery


One day Billy and his mother went for a ride on a bus. They were going to visit Grandmother. They sat on a long seat where they could watch all the people in the bus. Billy looked at the people.

On one seat a man was sitting. He was reading a book.

On another seat a woman was sitting. She had a lot of things in her hands: a big bag, three boxes, two books and some red flowers. Billy couldn’t even see her face. He saw only two flowers on her hat.

Suddenly Billy saw an old lady in front of him.

She had a white paper – bag in her hands.

a paper – bag? “ you ask. “That is not so interesting after all”

But it was very interesting to Billy, because this paper – bag was not sitting still. This paper – bag was dancing.

What can it be?” thought Billy.

Here was a big question, a big mystery.

Who? Why? What?” thought Billy.

He sat very still all the time watching the paper – bag.

Suddenly the bus stopped, and Billy heard a very loud “MEW!”

Then he saw two little black ears, and a little pink nose and two green eyes.

Oh, it is a kitten!” cried Billy. And he laughed.

Dear children, if you want to see this kitten too, look at the picture.
