一、The Ant And The Grasshopper 蚂蚁和蚱蜢
In a field one summer's day
a Grasshopper was hopping about,
chirping and singing to its heart's content.
An Ant passed by,
bearing along with great toil an ear of corn
he was taking to the nest.
"Why not come and chat with me,"
said the Grasshopper,
"instead of toiling and moiling away?"
"I am helping to lay up food for the winter," said the Ant，
"and recommend you to do the same."
"Why bother about winter?" said the Grasshopper;
"we have got plenty of food at present."
But the Ant went on its way and continued its toil.
When the winter came the Grasshopper found itself dying of hunger,
while it saw the ants distributing,

二、《The Lucky Penny》幸运币
Rabbit went to visit his friend Bear.
Hopping along, he spotted a penny and picked it up.
When he reached Bear’s house,
“Hi, Bear. Look at this shiny penny I found.”
He put the penny into his back pocket and said,
“Finding a penny brings good luck.”
“I need luck,” said Bear.
“I’ve locked myself out of my house.
My house key is not where it should be.”
“Where should it be?” asked Rabbit.
“In the front pocket of my overalls,” said Bear.
“I’m sure I dropped it in there as I worked in my garden.
I’ve searched for an hour, but I can’t find the key.”
“Let’s look some more,” said Rabbit.
He searched near the porch.
Bear peered into the pond.
They both crawled through the bushes.
“We’re not having any luck.”
Those words made Rabbit remember his good luck penny.
He plucked it from his back pocket.
“Bear,” said Rabbit,
“we know your key isn’t in your front pocket.
But could you have put it into your back pocket?”
Bear checked his back pocket.
“Here it is!That really is a lucky penny!”
