THE SEASONS IN ENGLAND
English families like to spend their holidays and weekends in the countryside. The English countryside is like a carpet of many flowers in every season. In spring and summer the fields, the meadows and the forests are light green and dark green, and the gardens are red, blue, yellow and white with flowers. In autumn the leaves on the trees change their colour from green to yellow, brown and red.
The English summer is never very hot and in winter it is not cold. Spring and autumn are cool. There is little snow in winter, and it never stays on the ground for long. But there is much rain in England all the year round. The weather is very changeable.
The grass in the mountains is green all the year round, that's why you can see many cows and sheep in the meadows of the mountains.
English children like to play football very much.

Every day there are more and more people living on the Earth. All these people need room to live. So, they move into places that are already homes for plants and animals. Forests are cut down, and wild areas are filled with houses and stores. When people move into a new land the plants and animals that live there can become endangered and begin to disappear. Some even become extinct — which means that they all die and go from the Earth forever. We enjoy pictures and stories about the dinosaurs who lived on the Earth many millions of years ago. They are extinct now. That could happen to elephants, zebras, redwood trees, frogs, butterflies, robins, or goldfish, or another animals if we're not careful. Let's keep the Earth green and healthy and full of millions of wonderful creatures.

THE TRAVELLER AND THE LION
One day a traveller in Africa went for a walk. When he was far from home, he saw a lion. The lion saw him at the same time and began to go after him. When the traveller walked quickly, the lion walked quickly, too. When he stopped, the lion also stopped. The man thought, "The lion is going to jump at me when it is dark. I cannot run away, so I must think of something." He looked round and saw a large stone. It was near the river which the lion could not see. The man came to the stone and sat behind it. Then he took a stick, put his coat and his hat on it and put the stick out above the stone.
