Donkey is saved in Ireland - level 1

Donkey is saved in Ireland - level 1

11-12-2015 07:00

In Ireland, there are floods. A donkey is in trouble. He is in deep water. He cannot get away.

People want to save the donkey. They come to him in a boat. They put a lifebuoy around his neck. The lifebuoy is connected to the boat. The boat pulls the donkey.

The donkey gets on land. He is very happy. He looks like he smiles in a photograph.

Difficult words: floods (when a lot of water goes in land), lifebuoy (something like a balloon which keeps you above the surface of water), connected (together).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Are there many floods in your country?
