This happens in Brazil. A monkey has a baby. The baby is one week old. It cannot live without the mother.

The mother doesn’t want the baby. We don’t know why. The mother stops helping the baby. The baby is in great danger. It can die. The monkey needs help. It needs human milk. Human milk is like monkey milk. The zoo asks women for the milk. One woman gives milk to the monkey.

The zoo feeds the monkey with the human milk. The monkey likes it! The monkey is safe.

Difficult words: danger (situation which is not safe), feed (give food).

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