But tonight, a car stopped at his house. A policeman helps him get out. He tells Tom’s wif e, “The old man couldn’t find his way in the street. He asked me to take him in the car.”
After the policeman leaves there, his wife asks, “Tom, you go to the street every night. Bu t tonight you can’t find the way, what’s the matter?”
The old man smiles like a child and says, “I couldn’t find my way? I didn’t want to walk home.“
2、乌龟与兔子 The Tortoise and the Hare
The Hare was once boasting of his speed before other animals. "I have never been beaten," said he, "when I put forth my full speed. I challenge any one here to race with me."
The Tortoise said quietly, "I accept your challenge."
"That is a good joke," said the Hare; "I could dance round you all the way."
"Keep your boasting till you've won," answered the Tortoise. "Shall we race?"
So a course was fixed and a start was made. The Hare darted almost out of sight at once, but soon stopped and, to show his contempt for the Tortoise, lay down to have a nap. The Tortoise plodded on and plodded on, and when the Hare awoke from his nap, he saw the Tortoise just near the winning-post and could not run up in time to save the race.
于是，他们确定了一条比赛路线和起点。比赛开始，兔子是嗖的一声就跑得没影了，但他很快就停了下来。 为了让乌龟知道他并没把乌龟放在眼里，兔子决定睡上一觉再接着跑。 这时，乌龟正一点一点艰难地向前爬着。 当兔子一觉醒来，发现乌龟离终点已经很近了，要追已经赶不上了。
Then the Tortoise said: "Slow but steady progress wins the race."
3、狼来了 Wolves are coming
Some time ago, a child was herding sheep on the mountain.
He saw many people were doing work at the bottom of the mountain, and wanted to prank them. So he purposely yelled: "Wolves are coming! Wolves are coming!"
他看到很多人在山下干活儿， 想捉弄一下别人， 就故意大声喊叫：" 狼来了！ 狼来了！"
The people heard, and ran up the mountain.
But, there were no wolves. The child was lying. People were tricked.
可是， 山上根本没有狼， 是放羊的孩子在撒谎，人们被他欺骗了。
A few days later, people heard the child yell again: "Wolves are coming! Wolves are coming!"
Everyone ran up the mountain again, but they didn't see wolves. Everyone were tricked by the child again.
A few days later, wolves really came.
The child yelled again: "Wolves are coming! Wolves are coming! Wolves really are coming!"
Everyone heard him, but no one did anything.
4、千镜之屋 The House of 1000 Mirrors
Long ago in a small, faraway village, there was aplace known as the House of 1000 Mirrors.
A small, happy little dog learned of this place anddecided to visit. When he arrived, he hounced happilyup the stairs to the doorway of the house.
He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could.
To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tailswagging just as fast as his.
He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and firendly.
As he left the House, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visitit often."
In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided tovisit the house.
He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door.
When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them andwas horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him.
As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again."
All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of thepeople you meet?
5、狼和七只小山羊 The wolf and the seven little kids
One day, the weather was really good. The mother lamb was about to cut grass. Right be-fore leaving, the mother lamb told her seven baby lambs:Do not open the door carelessly, be careful of the big wolf.
As soon as the mother lamb left, the big wolf came. As he knocked at the door, he tried to sing like the mother lamb.
As soon as the baby lambs heard the coarse voice, they knew that it was the big wolf." We won't open the door! You are not our mother at all."
After a while,the big wolf came back and knocked at the door again. This time, he used a soft and sweet voice to sing.
The lambs thought it was their mother, and opened the door. The big wolf broke into the house and ate six lambs.
The big wolf was full and lay down under a tree and took a nap "Zzzzz ... Zzzz".
The mother lamb came home. The youngest baby lamb came over and said:"My brothers and sisters were all eaten by the big wolf."
The mother lamb found the big wolf and cut the wolf's stomach with a pair of scissors-the six lambs jumped out.
Some baby lambs used a trolley to pull a lot of big stones,some baby lambs rolled big stones from a long distance.They put the big stones in the stomach of the wolf. The mother lamb sewed the wolf's stomach.
With a stomach filled with stones, when the big wolf walked he jingled. Never again will he be able to catch the baby lambs.
