A Great Idea 好主意 | 🎵睡前故事🎵
Mary and George were playing in the garden when Mary suddenly stopped and said, “I’ve just had an idea.”
“What’s that?” George asked.
“Why don’t we ask mummy if she could put up the tent for us,” Mary said. “We could stay in it until tea time.”
“But what about our lunch?” George asked.
“We could have a picnic in the tent,” Mary replied.
“How about our afternoon nap?” George asked next.
“We could use the sleeping bags,” Mary said.
“I think it’s a good idea,” George said.
But, when they asked her, mummy was not so sure it was a great idea. “I think it’s going to rain,” she said, looking up at the grey clouds.
“Oh please, mummy,” Mary and George pleaded and, a little reluctantly, she agreed.
Mary and George helped her to put up the tent and put the sleeping bags inside.
They also helped her to make their picnic lunch. They prepared two lunchboxes, each containing a cheese sandwich, a piece of cake, a drink and an apple.
Once Mary and George were out in the tent it started raining. But it didn’t matter. Then, they ate their lunch.
ary and George both felt a bit sleepy. They took off their shoes, clambered into their sleeping bags and had a doze.
It was still raining and mummy came out under the cover of an umbrella to see how Mary and George were getting on. She peeked into the tent to find them both snuggled up in their sleeping bags, snoozing happily. It had been a great idea to put the tent up.
