Passage 1

The Dog and His Reflection
One day, a dog was carrying a bone. The bone was stolen. He crossed a log in a stream. As he walked on the log, the dog looked down. He looked into the water. He saw another dog carrying a bigger bone below him.

The bone looked delicious to the dog. He leaned over as far as he could. He snapped at the other dog to get the other bone. He dropped his bone because the other bone and the other dog were just a reflection. The bone he had stolen sank into the water. He lost it and walked away hungry.



Passage 2

One Smart Cat
Jaguar had sharp claws and teeth, but he was bad hunter.

Jaguar asked Cat for help. Cat was small, but he always had food. “Cat, please teach me to be a great hunter.”

Cat thought about it. “Okay. You must practice.”

Jaguar agreed. Cat taught Jaguar his tricks. Jaguar learned to be sneaky. He learned to keep his teeth and claws sharp. Cat taught him to jump forward, side to side, and up. Jaguar became a good jumper.

Cat said, “Our lessons are over.”

“Now I will eat him,” Jaguar thought. “No one will know that this animal taught me to hunt.”

Quickly, Jaguar leaped forward. Cat jumped backward. Jaguar landed on his face.

Jaguar howled, “You never taught me to jump backward!”

Cat laughed. “If I had, I would not be alive. I saved this trick for myself!”

Jaguar hunts, but to this day, he cannot jump backward.
