22-11-2022 15:00

A family goes fishing. They are in a boat on a lake. They see something in the water. It looks like a bear.

The family moves the boat closer to the animal. The animal is a baby black bear. The bear has a plastic tub on its head. This is very dangerous. The bear tries to swim. However, water is in the tub.

The family decides to save the bear. The woman drives the boat. The man wants to take the tub off the bear’s head. At first, the man cannot do it. After a while, the man gets the tub off the bear’s head. The bear swims to the shore.

In the past, bears do not live in this area. However, the number of bears is growing. It is more common to see bears in the area.

Difficult words: tub (a small round piece of plastic where we keep food or liquid), shore (the land along a sea or lake), common (usual or normal).
