Here is some news from China. People moved away a panda’s companion from their zoo last week. Since then, zookeepers noticed something disturbing.

The panda was depressed. She was not eating properly. The zookeepers had an interesting idea. They moved in some new company for the lonely panda: a new television!

Yes, the panda now has her own TV. She can enjoy the TV while she eats bamboo. After zookeepers played a video of her and her old friend, the panda is happier. She started to play on her swing.

Difficult words: companion (friend), disturbing (worrying), swing (seat on ropes for playing).

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