Man Saves a Dog in Peru - level 1

14-03-2016 07:00

In Peru, storms are happening. The storms are affecting people and animals.

Somehow, a dog is in the middle of a river. The water in the river is very high and muddy. The dog tries to get out. He swims to a bridge. He cannot climb the bridge. The water tosses him about. People cannot reach him to help him.

The dog finally swims to the river’s side. A man comes to the dog and pulls him out.

Rescue workers come. They take the dog to a safe place. People name him after the river. They could also name him Lucky!

Difficult words: affect (to make something change), toss about (to throw), reach (to touch or pick something up).

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