One day while Rabbit was eating grass in the field, he (16) (see) saw Eagle in the sky above him. Rabbit (17) (be) was very afraid and (18) (run) ran home to his hole as fast as he could. Rabbit (19) (stay) stayed in his hole day after day because he (20) (be) was afraid to go outside. He (21) (get) got very hungry, but still he (22) (stay) styed in his hole. Finally, he (23) (find) found the courage to go outside because he (24) needed (need) (25) (eat) to.
Carefully and slowly, he (26) (put) put his little pink nose outside the hole. He (27) (smell, not) didn't smell any dangerous animals. And he (28) (see, not) didn't see Eagle anywhere, so he (29) (hop) hopped out and (30) (find) found some delicious new grass to eat. While he was eating the grass, he (31) (see) saw a shadow on the field and (32) (look) looked up. It was Eagle! Rabbit said, "Please don't eat me, Eagle! Please don't eat me, Eagle!"
On this sunny afternoon, Eagle was on her way home to her nest when she (33) (hear) heard a faint sound below her. "What is that sound?" Eagle said to herself. She looked around, but she (34) (see, not) didn't see anything. She (35) (decide) decided to ignore the sound and go home. She was tired and (36) (want) wanted (37) (rest) to rest in her nest.
Then below her, Rabbit (38) (say) said again in a very loud voice, "Please don't eat me, Eagle! Please don't eat me, Eagle." This time Eagle (39) (hear) heard Rabbit clearly. Eagle (40) (spot) spotted Rabbit in the field, (41) (fly) flew down, and (42) (pick) picked Rabbit up in her talons (когти).
"Thank you, Rabbit," said Eagle. "I was hungry and (43) (know, not) didn't know where I could find my dinner. It's a good thing you called to me." Then Eagle (44) (eat) ate Rabbit for dinner.
There's a lesson to learn from this story, children. If you (45) (be) are afraid and expect bad things to happen, bad things will happen. The opposite is also true. If you (46) (expect) expect good things to happen, good things will happen. (47) (you, understand) Do you understand? Now it's time for bed.
CHILDREN: Please tell us another story!
GRANDMA: Not tonight. I'm tired. After I (48) (have) have a warm drink, I (49) (go) will to bed. All of us need (50) (get) to get a good night's sleep. Tomorrow (51) (be) will be a busy day.
CHILDREN: What (52) (we, do) will we do tomorrow?
GRANDMA: After we (53) (have) have breakfast, we (54) (go) will to the zoo at Woodland Park. When we (55) (be) are at the zoo, we (56) (see) will see lots of wonderful animals. Then in the afternoon we (57) (see) will see a play at the Children's Theater. But before we (58) (see) see the play, we (59) (have) will have a picnic lunch in the park.
CHILDREN: WOW! We (60) (have) will have a wonderful day tomorrow!
GRANDMA: NOW off to bed! Goodnight, Rachel and Peter. Sleep tight. (=''sleep well)
CHILDREN: Goodnight, Grandma. Thank you for the story!
