Gorilla saves her little sister - level 1

07-04-2015 07:00

This happens in a zoo. The zoo is in Israel. A gorilla has an accident. She falls into a moat. She cannot get back. She is small. She is three years old.

The gorilla’s big sister sees this. She wants to help. She gets down into the moat. The little sister gets on her back.

The big gorilla tries to climb up the moat wall. She is not successful, but she finds another way. This way is better. Both gorillas are fine.

Difficult words: moat (a space in the ground with water in it for protection), climb (to move), successful (when you are successful, you finish something).

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