“The Fox and The Grapes”
One hot summer day a Fox was walking in an orchard and he found a bunch of Grapes on a vine. “Just the thing to satisfy my thirst.” He ran and jumped but missed the bunch. Again and again he tried but he couldn’t get it. At last he had to give up, and walked away saying, “I’m sure they are sour.”

“Welcome to Our House”
Hello, I’m Handsome Dog. “Woof woof.”
Welcome to Our House. Lots of us live here together, and we are all friends.
Let me show you around.
This is Ms. Beautiful Cheerful Cat. “Hello.” “Meow.” She is very fashionable and she always sharpens her claws.
This is Mr. Chest Thumping Gorilla. “Hi.” “Oowa oowa.” He is so strong he can pick up anything!
Let’s go upstairs. “Hello, Ms. Pig.” “Oink oink.” This is Ms. Pig. Thankfully, she is a clean freak, and she keeps our house clean.
“Shh, do you hear someone singing?” It’s Mr. Fluffy Bird. He’s really good at singing. Once he starts singing, everyone starts singing together. We all like singing.
We are all wonderful friends.
Would you like to be our friend?

“Over the Rainbow”
Somewhere over the rainbow way up high
there’s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue
and the dreams that you dare to dream
really do come true
Someday, I’ll wish upon a star
and wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
away above the chimney tops
that’s where you’ll find me
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
why then, oh, why can’t I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why, can’t I?

“Jack and the Beanstalk”
Once upon a time, a boy lived with his mother. Their only possession was the mother’s golden ring.
His mother said, “Go sell this ring at the marketplace.”
Jack went. On the way, however, he met a strange man who offered to give Jack magic beans for the ring. Jack agreed.
When Jack got home, his mother was furious and threw the beans outside. Jack went to bed sad.
The next morning, the beans had grown into a huge beanstalk! Jack climbed it and saw a castle. He sneaked in and found a magic hen that laid golden eggs. Jack grabbed the hen and began to go back to the beanstalk, but suddenly he heard a loud voice.
“FEE FI FO FUM!!! THERE IS A STRANGER IN MY CASTLE!” A giant! Jack ran, but the giant chased him.
Down the beanstalk Jack went. When he reached the ground, he grabbed his axe from the house and began chopping at the beanstalk. Chop! Chop! Chop! Jack chopped through the beanstalk and it toppled over with the giant. Jack and his mother lived happily ever-after with the magic hen.

“The Three Pigs”
One day, three pigs decided to move into the forest.
In the forest, they each made a house. The Little Pig used straw, the Medium Pig, sticks, and the Big Pig, bricks.
However, in the forest there was a terrible and greedy wolf. One day, the wolf found the Little Pig in the straw house! He knocked on the door.
“Mr. Pig, can I come in?” he said. The scared little pig, said, “No, you can’t!” The wolf said, “Then I’ll blow your house down!” And he did, and ate the Little Pig.
Soon the wolf found the house of sticks. He knocked and said, “Mr. Pig, can I come in?” But the Medium Pig said, “No, you can’t!” The wolf blew down the house and ate him too.
Next, the wolf found the house of brick. He knocked on the door and said, “Mr. Pig, can I come in?” But the Big Pig said, “No, you can’t!” The wolf smiled and said, “Then I’ll blow your house down!” He tried and tried to blow the house down, but he couldn’t because the bricks were too strong.
The wolf gave up, and the Big Pig lived happily in the forest.
