Wild bear relaxes - level 1

This news is from Florida. A family has a special guest. It is a black bear. It comes to the family’s garden. It relaxes in the hammock. The bear looks like a tourist.

The neighbours turn on their lights. The bear gets scared. It runs away. It comes back later.

The bear also looks for food in bins. People put away their bins. The family puts away their hammock.

Difficult words: hammock (piece of cloth for relaxing), tourist (visitor), neighbours (people who live next door), bin (container for trash and old food).

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

Do you have wild animals in your garden?
