The Old Cat An old woman had a cat. The cat was very old; she could not run quickly, and she could not bite, because she was so old. One day the old cat saw a mouse; she jumped and caught the mouse. But she could not bite it; so the mouse got out of her mouth and ran away, because the cat could not bite it. Then the old woman became very angry because the cat had not killed the mouse. She began to hit the cat. The cat said, "Do not hit your old servant. I have worked for you for many years, and I would work for you still, but I am too old. Do not be unkind to the old, but remember what good work the old did when they were young."
【译文】 老猫 一位老妇有只猫, 这只猫很老, 它跑不快了, 也咬不了东西, 因为它年纪太大了。 一天,老猫发现一只老鼠,它跳过去抓这只老鼠,然而,它咬不住这只老鼠。因 此,老鼠从它的嘴边溜掉了,因为老猫咬不了它。 于是,老妇很生气,因为老猫没有把老鼠咬死。她开始打这只猫,猫说:“不要 打你的老仆人,我已经为你服务了很多年,而且还愿意为你效劳,但是,我实在 太老了,对年纪大的不要这么无情,要记住老年人在年青时所做过的有益的事 情。” A man was going to the house of some rich person. As he went along the road, he saw a box of good apples at the side of the road. He said, "I do not want to eat those apples; for the rich man will give me much food; he will give me very nice food to eat." Then he took the apples and threw them away into the dust. He went on and came to a river. The river had become very big; so he could not go over it. He waited for some time; then he said, "I cannot go to the rich man's house today, for I cannot get over the river." He began to go home. He had eaten no food that day. He began to want food. He came to the apples, and he was glad to take them out of the dust and eat them. Do not throw good things away; you may be glad to have them at some other time. 【译文】
一个人正朝着一个富人的房子走去,当他沿着路走时,在路的一边他发现一箱好 苹果,他说:“我不打算吃那些苹果,因为富人会给我更多的食物,他会给我很 好吃的东西。”然后他拿起苹果,一把扔到土里去。 他继续走,来到河边,河涨水了,因此,他到不了河对岸,他等了一会儿,然后 他说:“今天我去不了富人家了,因为我不能渡过河。” 他开始回家,那天他没有吃东西。他就开始去找吃的,他找到苹果,很高兴地把 它们从尘土中翻出来吃了。 不要把好东西扔掉,换个时候你会觉得它们大有用处。
The City Mouse and the Country Mouse Once there were two mice. They were friends. One mouse lived in the country; the other mouse lived in the city. After many years the Country mouse saw the City mouse; he said, "Do come and see me at my house in the country." So the City mouse went. The City mouse said, "This food is not good, and your house is not good. Why do you live in a hole in the field? You should come and live in the city. You would live in a nice house made of stone. You would have nice food to eat. You must come and see me at my house in the city." The Country mouse went to the house of the City mouse. It was a very good house. Nice food was set ready for them to eat. But just as they began to eat they heard a great noise. The City mouse cried, " Run! Run! The cat is coming!" They ran away quickly and hid. After some time they came out. When they came out, the Country mouse said, "I do not like living in the city. I like living in my hole in the field. For it is nicer to be poor and happy, than to be rich and afraid." 【译文】 城里老鼠和乡下老鼠
从前,有两只老鼠,它们是好朋友。一只老鼠居住在乡村,另一只住在城里。很 多年以后,乡下老鼠碰到城里老鼠,它说:“你一定要来我乡下的家看看。”于是, 城里老鼠就去了。乡下老鼠领着它到了一块田地上它自己的家里。它把所有最精 美食物都找出来给城里老鼠。城里老鼠说:“这东西不好吃,你的家也不好,你
为什么住在田野的地洞里呢?你应该搬到城里去住, 你能住上用石头造的漂亮房 子,还会吃上美味佳肴,你应该到我城里的家看看。” 乡下老鼠就到城里老鼠的家去。房子十分漂亮,好吃的东西也为他们摆好了。可 是正当他们要开始吃的时候,听见很大的一阵响声,城里的老鼠叫喊起来:“快 跑!快跑!猫来了!”他们飞快地跑开躲藏起来。 过了一会儿,他们出来了。当他们出来时,乡下老鼠说:“我不喜欢住在城里, 我喜欢住在田野我的洞里。因为这样虽然贫穷但是快乐自在,比起虽然富有却要 过着提心吊胆的生活来说,要好些。” My own home Rabbit has grown up. "There are too many rabbits in this hole! It is time to leave the nest. I am going to find my own home," the oldest rabbit says. Rabbit decides to look in a different hole. "You cannot live here. This is my home!" shouts Mouse. So, Rabbit hops into the forest. He looks into another hole. "You cannot live here. This is my home!" shouts Squirrel. Rabbit looks for a new hole, one he can call his own. "You cannot live here. This is my home!" shouts Ground Hog. Rabbit is sad. He cannot find a home. Rabbit does not see Eagle flying high in the sky. At that time, the beautiful White Rabbit saw Eagle. "Quickly, come inside!" she shouts. "Thank you so much. You have saved my life!" Rabbit says. "You're welcome," White Rabbit answers. "What a roomy hole you have! I wish I had a hole like this!" he says. Rabbit was surprised by how big the hole was. "I am alone in this big hole. Why don't you stay here with me?" White Rabbit asks. "Thank you. I will stay here. Now, I have found a home!" says Rabbit
The Mole and His Mother A MOLE, a creature blind from birth, once said to his Mother: "I am sure than I can see, Mother!" In the desire to prove to him his mistake, his Mother placed before him a few grains of frankincense, and asked, "What is it?' The young Mole said, "It is a pebble." His Mother exclaimed: "My son, I am afraid that you are not only blind, but that you have lost your sense of smell.
小鼹鼠和妈妈 传说鼹鼠的眼睛是瞎的,可小鼹鼠却对妈妈说他能看得见。妈想试验他一下, 便拿来一 小块香喷喷的食物,放在他面前,并问他是什么。他说是一颗小石头。 母亲说:“啊,不幸 的孩子,你不但眼睛看不见,连鼻子也没用了。” 这故事是 说, 那些爱吹牛说大话的人, 常常夸海口能做大事, 却在一些微不足道的事情 上 暴露了本质。
The wolf and the hares The wind is blowing . It is snowing . The wolf is coming and say : “ I’m a wolf , I’m hungry .” The wolf is going the hares. “ open the door .” The hare say: “ who is it ?” the wolf say : “it’s me , Grandma .” “Grandma ?

狮子与报恩的老鼠(The lion and the mouse)2006-11-16 09:58 When a lion was asleep, a little mouse began running up and down beside him. This soon wakened the lion. He was very angry, and caught the mouse in his paws. "Forgive me, please." cried the little mouse. "I may be able to help you someday." The lion was tickled at these words. He thought, "How could this little mouse help me?" However he lifted up his paws and let him go. A few days later, the lion was caught in a trap. The hunters wanted to take him alive to the king, so they tied him to a tree, and went away to look for a wagon. Just then the little mouse passed by, and saw the sad lion.
He went up to him, and soon gnawed away the ropes. "Was I not right?" asked the little mouse. 狮子与报恩的老鼠 ●狮子睡着了,有只老鼠在他的周围爬上爬下,很快吵醒了狮子,狮子很生气, 一把抓住了老鼠。 ●“饶了我吧,”老鼠请求说,“也许有一天我能帮上你的忙呢。”狮子觉得很好笑, 他想:“这只小老鼠怎么能帮上我的忙?”但他还是抬起爪子放他走了。 ●不久,狮子被陷阱困住了。猎人们想将活狮子献给国王,就把他捆在一棵大树 上,然后去找马车。这时,老鼠路过这里,看到了绝望中的狮子。他走过去,很 快啃断了绳索,说:“我虽小,可是我也能帮上你的忙。” 寓意: 有些朋友也许平时看似微不足道,但却有可能在我们身处困境的时候提供 巨大的帮助。

I will call “wolf. wolf.” then everyone come to help me. It will be fun when they find out there is no wolf after all. So he cried: “wolf .wolf.” and everyone ran to help him. When they came he just said: “there is no wolf. It was only a joke.” He did this three times. Then one day a wolf really came. “Help! Help! The wolf is here.” called the boy. But everyone said: “No you know that there is no wolf. He is just calling us for fun. There is no danger.” So they did not go to help the boy. The wolf killed all the sheep then. 狼来了 从前,有一个住在农场里的孩子。每天,他都要带他父亲的羊到山上去放。 一天,他想对其他人开一次玩笑。他自言自语说道:“我要叫“狼呀!狼呀!”那么, 人人都会来帮我的了。如果,他们发现根本没有狼,那么多有趣呀!” 因此他叫道:“狼呀!狼呀!”每个人都跑去帮助他。 当他们来到的时候,他只是说:“这里没有狼,这只是一个玩笑。” 他这样做了三次。 然后,有一天,一只狼真的来了。 “救命!救命!狼来了!”男孩子叫道. 但人人都说:“我们知道那儿没有狼。他只不过是因为好玩而叫我们。那里没有 危险的。” 于是,他们没有去帮助那个男孩子。狼便把所有的羊都咬死了。
