Lost Japanese boy is back – level 2

Lost Japanese boy is back – level 2

13-06-2016 07:00

A boy in Japan was throwing rocks, so his parents decided to punish him by leaving him on the side of the road next to a forest. They drove off in their car. When they came back, their son was gone.

Rescue workers and volunteers looked for him for a week in the woods. People eventually found the boy at a military hut and took him to hospital.

He came out of hospital recently, wearing a baseball cap that had messages on it. He told people that he felt OK and that he forgave his parents.

Difficult words: punish (make a person feel bad feelings or pain for doing something bad), forgive (say you are not angry with somebody after they did something wrong).

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