Animals and Christmas - level 2
Animals and humans definitely have something in common, even such things as enjoying Christmas.
Animals at a zoo in Chile received some Christmas presents this year. The curious animals opened the boxes and looked inside. It was a very exciting thing for them to do, although some of them were more interested in the boxes and wrapping paper than in the gifts themselves.
Visitors and animals enjoyed this alike. The trees were decorated by edible baubles, so they didn’t last particularly long.
When the animals had eaten all their presents, there was nothing better to do than lay back and relax.
Difficult words: edible (can be eaten), bauble (decoration), particularly (very).
