There is a princess. Her name is Snow White. Her skin is white and her lips are red. Snow White is kind, so everyone loves her. Only the Evil Queen doesn′t like her.
The Evil Queen has a magic mirror. She looks in it every day. Each morning, she asks the magic mirror, "Who is the most beautiful woman in the world?" The mirror says, "You are the most beautiful woman, my queen."
Today the Evil Queen looks in her magic mirror again. "Who is the most beautiful woman in the world?" she asks. The mirror says, "Snow White is the most beautiful woman in the world. She has white skin and lips that are so red."
The Evil Queen is very angry. "What? I am the most beautiful woman in the world," says the Evil Queen. "I will send my servant to kill Snow White. Then I will be the most beautiful woman again."
The Evil Queen calls her servant and tells him to kill Snow White. The servant likes Snow White, so he can't kill her. He tells Snow White to run away quickly.
Snow White runs, runs, and runs. Finally she runs into the woods. The woods are scary and dark. Snow White is tired, hungry, and scared. In the woods, she sees a little house and goes inside.
The little house belongs to seven little dwarfs. They are not at home now. They are out working. Snow White looks around the little house. The room is a little messy, so she cleans it up.
The seven dwarfs come home and are surprised to see Snow White in the house. Because she is so nice, they soon like her. They even ask her to stay with them. Snow White is safe now.
The Evil Queen thinks Snow White is dead. "Now, I am the most beautiful woman in the world," she says. She asks the mirror, "Who's the most beautiful woman now?" The mirror still says, "Snow White."
The queen is so angry. "I will kill Snow White myself," she says. "I will drink magic water and become an old and ugly witch. Then, I will see Snow White and give her a poisoned apple. She will eat it and go to sleep," the Evil Queen laughs .
Snow White likes the seven dwarfs. She cooks food for them. She even cleans the little house. The seven dwarfs like Snow White. They are like a happy family.
The Evil Queen finds Snow White. "Would you like to have a beautiful red apple?" the witch asks. She gives Snow White an apple. Snow White takes a bite of the apple and falls asleep. No one can ever wake her up. The witch laughs and runs away.
The witch runs up a tall mountain, and the seven dwarfs chase her. The witch tries to hurt them, but she slips and falls down the mountain. She dies.
The seven dwarfs make a glass bed for Snow White. Around it they put flowers and beautiful things. Every day they cry, "We miss you, Snow White." Snow White does not wake up.
One day, a prince is passing by. He sees the beautiful Snow White on her special bed. "She is so beautiful, I want to kiss her." He gives Snow White a kiss. Just then, she wakes up. The prince asks her to marry him, and she says yes. Snow White and the prince live happily ever after.
Snow White is born on a cold winter day. She is as white as snow. Her eyes are very big, her hair very long and her voice is sweet. She is very kind and beautiful. Everyone loves her. Her mummy, the Queen loves her, too. But she died.
A new Queen comes. She is beautiful, but bad. She doesn't like Snow White, because Snow White is the most beautiful girl in the world.
"I will kill Snow White." So she orders a hunter to kill Snow White. The hunter is an honest man. "You are a good girl; I don't want to kill you." So he lets Snow White go.
Snow White goes into a forest. She finds a house, and goes into the house. Seven dwarfs live there. They like Snow White, and ask Snow White to live with them.
No sooner, the new Queen dies. Because she isn't the most beautiful woman in the world.
a long time ago in china lived the jade emperor. it was his birthday. he wanted to measure time to know how old he was.
all the animals arrived. the emperor decided to have a race to give a name to each year of the chinese zodiac.
the rat and the cat couldn't swim very well.
"can you take us across the river?"
"yes, jump and quick!"
they swam across the river. then the rat pushed the cat into the water and jumped on to land.
”well done,rat! the first year will be the year of the rat and the second will be the year of the ox."
"look! here's the tiger. he's very tired. the third year will be the year of the tiger."
"the rabbit can't swim but he's very clever. the fourth year will be the year of the rabbit."
"why are you late, dragon? you can fly!"
"i had to make some rain for thirsty people to drink."
"well done! the fifth year is the year of the dragon."
"what's this? i can hear a horse. no, it's a snake. so the snake has the sixth year."
"well done! it is good to see you working together! the goat is eighth, the monkey is ninth and rooster is tenth."
“sorry i'm late. the water is clean and i needed a bath."
" the eleventh is the year of the dog."
“you are the last."
"yes, i had to eat and sleep on the way."
"the last is the year of the pig."
and that is how the emperor chose the animals for chinese zodiac.
