MY FATHER MEETS THE CAT
Hello, welcome to English Kids Story with Katrina. I’m Katrina and I'm back after a long break. I had some family matters to take care of. Now I will start my story podcast again. I create this show to inspire families to enjoy stories together. I do the same with my family. On my show, I teach English words and read a classic story. I write the stories myself. I read clear and slow English. The show is under 6 minutes. The show comes out Tuesday and Friday morning New York time. Please like and subscribe.
Today I will read a famous story about a boy who wants to fly. I already read this story with the original English last year. Now I will read the story with simple English for beginners. The story is called, "My Father's Dragon." How can the boy fly? Listen to the story to find out. The story has 10 parts. Today I will read part 1.
We will learn 3 words from the story. Ship. A ship is a big boat. Wild. A wild place does not have any people. Explore. We explore when we look and try to find something new. Listen for the 3 words: ship, wild, and explore.
One day when my father was a little boy, he went outside for a walk. My father saw an old cat on the street. It was raining. The cat was cold and wet. My father said, "Do you want to come inside my house?" The cat said, "Yes! I would like to sit by the warm fire and drink some milk." My father said, "Come with me. My mother will give you some milk." My father and the cat became good friends, but my mother didn't like the cat. My father's name was Elmer Elevator. My father's mother said, "Elmer Elevator, if I give that cat milk, more cats will come to our house because they want milk. I will not give milk to all of the cats!" My father was very sad. He said to the cat, "You can't stay inside my house. But I will bring you some milk to drink." My father gave the cat milk every day. One day, my father and the cat went for a walk in the park. My father said, "When I grow up, I want to fly a plane." The cat asked, "Do you want to fly? Do you want to fly very very much?" My father said, "Yes! I want to fly around the world!" The cat said, "I can help you." My father asked, "Can you help me get a plane?" The cat said, "No, I can't help you get a plane. But I can help you to fly. First, listen to my story. When I was a young cat, I traveled around the world. Last year I took my last trip. I traveled to an island. The name of the island is the Island of Tangerina. I sailed to the island on a ship. When I arrived at the Island of Tangerina, I heard about another island. The other island is called Wild Island. It's near to the Island of Tangerina. There are many rocks between the islands. People can walk from the Island of Tangerina to Wild Island on a path of rocks. But people never go to Wild Island because it's a wild place with a jungle and very wild animals. But I was not afraid. So I walked across the rocks. I went to explore Wild Island."
That’s the end of part 1. This story has 10 parts. I’m Katrina. My show comes out Tuesday and Friday morning New York time. Please like and subscribe. Thank you for listening. Goodbye until next time.
