There is a zoo in Chile. There are some animals. People give the animals Christmas presents.

The animals open the boxes and look inside. They like this very much. People like to watch the animals. Some animals play with the boxes and wrapping paper.

The zoo is decorated. There are small gifts on the trees. These gifts are edible. The animals eat them. When the animals eat everything, they relax.

Difficult words: wrapping paper (nice paper which covers gifts), decorated (nice objects for Christmas), edible (can be eaten).
