Good Boy (好孩子) 好孩子) Little Robert asked his mother for two cents. "What did you do with the money I gave you yesterday?" "I gave it to a poor old woman," he answered. "You're a good boy," said the mother proudly. "Here are two cents more. But why are you so interested in the old woman?" "She is the one who sells the candy."
Big Head (大脑袋) 大脑袋) “All the kids make fun of me.”the boy cried to his mother.“They say I have a big head.” “Don't listen to them.”his mother comforted him.“You have a beautiful head .Now stop crying and go to the store for ten pounds of potatoes” “Where's the shopping bag?” “I haven't got one.Use your hat.” “所有的孩子都拿我开玩笑, ”小男孩哭着跟妈妈说: “他们说我长了一个大脑袋。 ” “别听他们的, ”他妈妈安慰说: “你的脑袋长得很漂亮。好了,别哭了,去商店买 10 磅土 豆来。 ” “购物袋在哪?” “我没有购物袋,就用你的帽子吧。 ” What’s hiding? (在隐藏什么?) 隐藏什么?) Some people do not like caterpillars. Caterpillars look like fuzzy worms. They have many legs and they creep and crawl on trees and leaves. But a caterpillar is really the beginning of something else. After the caterpillar is very large, it spins a cocoon. It stays inside the cocoon for a few months. When the cocoon opens, something else is inside. It is very beautiful. It files away. Rhinos(犀牛) (犀牛) Rhinos are the second largest land animal. Only elephants are bigger.
Most people think rhinos are ugly. Their full name is "rhinoceros".There are five kinds of rhinos?the square-lipped rhino, black rhino, great Indian rhino, Sumatran rhino and javan rhino.
Rhino have a great sense of smell, which helps protect them. They can smell other animals far away. They don’t eat them, though. Rhino do not eat meat. They are vegetarians.

The first trains(第一列火车) (第一列火车) Trains have been around much longer than cars or trucks. The first train used in the United States was made in England. It was brought to the U.S. in 18
  29. Because it was light green, it was nicknamed the grasshopper. Unlike a real grasshopper, this train was not fast. It only went 10 miles an hour.
That same year, another train was built by an American. Compared to the grasshopper, the American train was fast. It went 30 miles an hour. People were amazed. This train was called the rocket. Can you guess why?
Your brain(你的大脑) (你的大脑) When you are grown, your brain will weigh only 3 pounds. But what an important 3 pounds! Billions of brain cells are packed into your brain. The cells make up the three areas of the brain. One part does your thinking and feeling. Another part of the brain helps you move your body. It also helps you keep your balances. The third part of the brain keeps you alive! It keeps your heart beating and your lungs working so you don't have to think about these things. This part of your brain is called the medulla. As long as you are alive, the medulla never rests.
The rainforest lizard(雨林蜥蜴) (雨林蜥蜴) Many strange animals live in the rainforest. One kind of the strange animals is a very large lizard. This lizard grows as large as a dog! It has scales on its skin. It has a very wide mouth. It has spikes sticking out of the top of its head. It looks scary, but don't be afraid! This lizard eats mostly weeds. This lizard does not look very tasty, but other animals think it tastes good. Snakes eat these lizards. So do certain birds. Some people in the rainforest eat them, too! Would you like to eat a lizard for lunch?
Visiting the rainforest(参观雨林) (参观雨林) Many people travel to the rainforest each year. Some go by car, some go by train and some go by school bus! You don't even need a passport?the only thing you need is a filed-trip permission slip. If you are lucky enough to live in the Cleveland, Ohio area, you might get to take a class trip to the rainforest there. It is next to the Cleveland zoo. This "rainforest"is a building that contains all
2
the sights, sounds, smells and temperatures of the real rainforest. You will get to see many of the animals, big and small, that you could see if you went to central or south America. The plants that grow there also grow in the rainforest. it is an interesting way to get an idea of what life is like in that part of the world! Cow(牛) ( Thousands of years ago, people domesticated (tamed) cows. If you live on or near a farm, you may see cows every day. You may know what it is like to hear their mooing sounds when they are ready to be fed or milked.
Cows are raised for meat and milk. If a cow is raised for the sole purpose of providing milk, it is called a dairy cow. Some common breeds of dairy cows are Holstein-Friesians, jerseys, brown Swiss and Guernseys. Cows raised for their meat are Herefords.
Cows use their long tails to swat flies and other bothersome bugs. Cows chew cud. This is a portion of their food that has already been chewed a little. It is swallowed, then brought back up after it has been combined with liquid. The cow has four stomachs which make this possible. What do you think of chewing cub? Yuck!
