This news is from Japan. A little boy throws rocks at things. His parents are not happy. They want to show him that he did something bad.

The family drives by a forest. His parents tell the boy to get out of the car. They tell him to stand on the side of the road. They drive away without him.

Later, his parents come back, but he is gone. Many people look for him. They look for a week. Finally, people find him at a military hut. They take him to hospital.

Difficult words: gone (away), military (connected with the army), hut (a very small house).

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