★乌鸦喝水

It was a scorching hot summer day. One crow wasvery thirsty.

"I'm so thirsty." The thirsty crow roamed around looking for water. After flying for along time, the crow found a water bottle in one of the farmer's yard. The crow was so happy that he was able to have a drink.

那是一个炎热的夏天,乌鸦非常渴。“好渴啊。”口渴的乌鸦四处找水喝。飞了很久后,在农夫的院子里发现一个水瓶子。乌鸦很高兴,终于找到水了。

The crow put his beak into the bottle. However, because the bottle was so long, he was not able to reach the water. The crow was exhausted。

乌鸦把嘴伸进瓶子里。可是瓶颈太长了,它够不着水。乌鸦累得筋疲力尽。

"Should I go some other place for a drink?" He thought. However, because his wings were damage, he was not able to move. "What shall I do?”

它想“要不我再去其它地方找水吧。”但因为翅膀受伤了,动弹不了。“我该怎么办?”

The crow flew round and round the farmer's yard, and thought. "Sure, that's what I will do."The crow had an idea.

乌鸦在农夫的院子里踱来踱去,想了又想。“对了,我可以这样做啊。”它突然想到了一个主意。

With all his strength, the crow started picking up stones.

"One, two..." He did this several times until the bottle was filled with stones. Then the crow drank a lot of water. Finally, the crow had enough strength to fly again.

乌鸦使尽浑身力气,开始捡石头。“一个、两个...”它一直捡一直捡,直到瓶子里装满了石头。就这样,乌鸦喝到了水。最后恢复力气飞走了。


被困在葡萄园里的狐狸

It was a sunny summer day. A fox was passing by a vineyard. Looking at the ripe grapes, thefox exclaimed, 'How delicious they must be!' The fox really wanted to taste the grapes.

那是一个晴朗的夏日。狐狸散步时正好路过一个葡萄园。狐狸看了看熟透了的葡萄,惊叹道:“这葡萄肯定好吃!”狐狸很想一饱口福。

So, the fox tried to go over the fence, but it was too high for him. Looking around, he found asmall hole in the corner. "Ha, ha, ha! Thank God! I can go through the hole and eat as manygrapes as I want!"

于是,狐狸想越过篱笆,但对他来说篱笆太高了。环顾四周,他发现角落里有一个小洞。“哈,哈,哈!真是感谢上帝!我可以从这个洞进去大吃一顿!”

The fox put his head in the hole but his stomach was too big. "Ouch! Why didn't they make alarger hole?" complained the fox.

狐狸的头可以穿过洞口,但肚子却卡在洞口进不去。“哎哟!他们为什么不挖个大一点的洞?”狐狸抱怨着。

'Why don't I starve myself for a few days. Then, my stomach will become slim enough for meto go through the hole.' Dreaming of eating delicious grapes, the fox starved for three days.The fox's stomach really became slim. "Well, I'd better go quickly into the vineyard!" he said.

“我为什么不让自己饿几天。这样,我的肚子就苗条了,我就可以钻洞吃美味的葡萄了。”为了吃到美味的葡萄,狐狸饿了三天。它的肚子真的瘦下来了。“好了,我得赶紧去葡萄园了!”他说。

The fox put his body through the hold in the fence. With such a slim stomach, the fox wasable to easily pass through the hole. After getting inside the vineyard, the fox jumped up anddown with joy. 'I am so clever.'

狐狸钻进栅栏旁边的洞口。肚子瘪了,狐狸便轻而易举地钻过了这个洞口。狐狸很兴奋,在葡萄园里高兴得跳了起来。我真是太聪明了。”

The fox madly picked and ate the grapes from a vine in full bloom. "Umm! How tasty!"

狐狸近似疯狂地从葡萄树上摘了葡萄吃。“嗯!真好吃啊!”

Walking by the vineyard, a bear spotted the fox eating delicious grapes. "Fox! Fox!" called outthe bear. "What's up?" carelessly replied the fox, as he was concentrating on eating grapes. "Can you give me some grapes? I am so hungry," begged the bear.

 

熊在葡萄园里散步时发现正在偷吃葡萄的狐狸。“狐狸!狐狸!”熊大叫起来。“什么事?”正专心地吃着葡萄的狐狸漫不经心地回答道。“你能分我一些葡萄吗?我太饿了。”熊说。

There were a lot of grapes left in the vineyard. However, the fox did not want to share thegrapes. "No! I will eat them all. I starved for three days to get at these grapes."

葡萄园里有很多葡萄。但是狐狸不想跟别人分享。“不要,我要全部吃掉。我饿了三天才吃到这些葡萄的。”

The bear reluctantly walked away. The fox snorted at the bear. 'Hmm! Trying to eat grapeswith just a word?'

熊不情愿地走开了。狐狸轻蔑地看着走远的熊。“想的真美!说句话就想吃到葡萄吗?

The fox ate grapes until his stomach became swollen. 'I am too full. I cannot eat any more. Ihad better go home and take a nap.'

狐狸不停的吃葡萄,肚子越来越大。“好饱啊。不能再吃了。我得回家美美的睡一觉。”

The fox put his head in the hole. But, what happened? His stomach is too bulky for him to getoutside. "Yelp, yelp! Let's use all my strength." The fox exerted all his power from his body, butit was no use.

狐狸把头伸进洞里。但是他的肚子太大出不去了。“哎呦!我得使劲啊。”狐狸使出浑身的力气也没能出来。

The fox had no choice but to starve for three days. And, he could come out of the hole onlyafter his stomach had gotten slim. "Oh, my! I'm so hungry." The fox held his growling stomachand went back home. Watching this, the bear and other animals laughed at the greedy fox.

狐狸别无选择,只能又饿了三天。等肚子瘦下去后,他才从洞里出来。“哦,天哪!饿死我了。”狐狸抱着咕咕叫的肚子回家了。看到这番景象,熊和其他动物都嘲笑这个贪婪的狐狸。
