学前儿童英语故事：The fox and the grapes
One hot summer day a fox was walking through an orchard. He stopped before a bunch of grapes. They were ripe and juicy.
"I’m just feeling thirsty," he thought. So he backed up a few paces, got a running start, jumped up, but could not reach the grapes.
He walked back. One, two, three, he jumped up again, but still, he missed the grapes.
The fox tried again and again, but never succeeded. At last he decided to give it up.
He walked away with his nose in the air, and said“I am sure they are sour.”

学前儿童英语故事：The wolf and the crane
When a wolf was eating an animal, a small bone from the meat got stuck in his throat. He could not swallow it, so he felt a terrible pain.
He ran up and down, and tried to find something to relieve the pain.
He tried to convince anyone to remove the bone. "I would give anything," he said, "if you would take it out."
At last the crane agreed to try. It told the wolf to open his mouth, and then put its long neck down the wolf’s throat.
The crane loosened the bone with its beak, and finally got it out.
"Will you kindly give me the reward?" asked the crane.
The wolf showed his teeth, and said, "Be content,you have put your head into a wolf’s mouth and taken it out again in safety. That is a great reward for you."
