With a mournful moan and silken tone,
Itself alone comes ONE TROMBONE.
Gliding, sliding, high notes go low;
ONE トロンボーン is playing SOLO.

Next, a TRUMPET comes along,
And sings and stings its swinging song.
It joins TROMBONE, no もっと見る alone,
And ONE and TWO-O, they’re a DUO.

Fine FRENCH HORN, its valves all oiled,
Bright and brassy, loops all coiled,
Golden yellow; joins its fellows.
TWO, now THREE-O, what a TRIO!

Now, a mellow friend, the CELLO,
Neck extended, bows a “hello”;
End pin set upon the floor,
It makes up a QUARTET—that’s FOUR.

And soaring high and moving in,
With ZIN! ZIN! ZIN! a VIOLIN,...

Long ago,
before the Civil War,
there was an old sailor called Peg Leg Joe
who did what he could to help free the slaves.


Joe had a plan.
He'd use hammer and nail and saw

and work for the master, the man
who owned slaves
on the cotton plantation.


Joe had a plan.
At night when work was done,
he'd teach the slaves a song
that secretly told the way
to freedom.
Just follow the drinking gourd, it said.


When the song was learned
and sung all day,
Peg Leg Joe would slip away
to work for another master
and teach the song again.


One day
a slave called Molly saw her man James
sold to another master.
James would be taken away,...

One sunny day, a クイーン honeybee leaves her hive. Other bees, called drones, follow her. The クイーン mates with a drone. Now she can lay eggs.


The クイーン flies back to the hive. Laying many eggs in her job. She puts one egg in each cell.


In three days the eggs hatch. Out come larvae. Worker bees feed the larvae.


After five または six days, workers cover the larvae cells. Inside the cell, the larvae grow into a pupa. In about ten days, a young bee comes out of the cells.


Hives have only one queen. Most other bees are workers. Some bees are drones. Workers are females. Drones are males.


Young worker bees...

Mrs. Davis felt peculiar as she took her morning bath.
“I feel like I’m being watched,” she 発言しました to herself.
And she was being watched…


…by Shirley Rat, the nosiest person in town.
“I see you’re using ライラック bubble bath,” 発言しました Shirley. “I personally prefer rose.”
Mrs. Davis pulled down the shade.

“I 愛 to know what’s going on,” 発言しました Shirley. “I don’t get paid for it—it’s my hobby.”
And Shirley’s hobby kept her very busy.


Reading other people’s mail took half the morning.
“You learn such interesting things,” 発言しました Shirley.

Listening in on private telephone conversations,...

THE 城 GUARD WITH HIS TRIDENT



How many prongs do あなた see?
I see two on the bottom—but on the top, three

Solution: Cover the 上, ページのトップへ of the trident and あなた see two prongs. Cover the bottom and the trident now has three prongs. あなた can draw this object, but あなた can’t construct it. (impossible-object illusion)

He was so small that his mother didn’t know he was there. The other piglets were always pushing and shoving, squealing greedily for food.


But the tiny pig was gentle, quiet, and never greedy. He always kept clean. While the other piglets rolled around in the mud, he would lie under his お気に入り 木, ツリー wishing for wings to carry him into the sky.
One 日 he heard a terrible squeal. A large 雌豚, 種まき, 種をまく had fallen in the road. The little pig crawled under the fence and ran to help her.

He had to push with all his might, but at last he got the 雌豚, 種まき, 種をまく up on her feet again.


The 雌豚, 種まき, 種をまく thanked the little pig and she...

Every fall, when the leaves start melting into pretty purples and reds and those bright golden shades of pumpkin, Mama says, “Coat time, Gabrielle!”


And they ride two trains to Grandpa’s tailor ショップ in the city. On the Silver Express from Meadowlawn to Pennsylvania Station, Gabby sits close to the window, her nose pressed to the smudge-glass for nearly an hour.


At Penn Station they walk fast, through long, dark passageways and underground tunnels. On a distant speaker someone calls out, “Thirty-fourth Street! Thirty-fourth Street! Change here for the Downtown Express, Uptown Express and...

My dad, Nino, makes the best ピザ in the world.
I’m his best helper.


I help knead the ピザ dough,

I help stir the ピザ sauce,


and I help grate the cheese.

When the customers are finished, I know how to pick up their plates


and carry out the dirty dishes.

I help give the extra pizzas to hungry people in the alley who have no homes.


And…I help my dad serve our ピザ pies!

People come from all over town to eat at Little Nino’s.
They wait in long lines because our restaurant is so small.


One night a man came to see my dad after the last pizza.
What did he want?

That night my dad told my mom we would...

Boy: Tell me the story again, Grandfather. Tell me who I am.
Grandfather: I have told あなた many times, Boy. あなた know the story によって heart.
Boy: But it sounds better when あなた tell it, Grandfather.
Grandfather: Then listen carefully. This may be the last telling.
Boy: No, no, Grandfather. There will never be a last time. Promise me that. Promise me.
Grandfather: I promise あなた nothing, Boy. I 愛 you. That is better than a promise.
Boy: And I 愛 you, Grandfather, but tell me the story again. Please.


Grandfather: Once there was a boy child…
Boy: No, Grandfather. Start at the beginning. Start at the beginning....
