Reading comprehensionWhy hares have long ears!

Once upon a time a hare made friends with a goat, and they started living together and sharing everything.

One day the goat said to the hare: ‘Let’s build a house!’

‘Let’s!’ answered the hare.

So off they went into the forest for some logs. They came up to a tree and the goat said: ‘I’ll knock this tree down!’

‘You’ll never!’ said the hare.

‘Oh, but I will. I’ll just show you!’ answered the goat.

And he took a long run and went CRASH! into the tree with his horns, and the tree fell down.

And the hare said to himself: ‘So that’s the way to knock trees down! Now I shall be able to do the same.’

And they came to another tree, and the hare said: ‘I’ll knock this tree down!’

‘You’ll never!’ said the goat.

‘Oh, but I will. I’ll just show you!’ answered the hare.

And he took a long run and went CRASH! into the tree with his forehead!

And the tree still stood where it was before, but the hare’s head had gone right into his shoulders.

The goat saw that he must get the hare’s head out from his shoulders, and he caught hold of the hare b he ears and began to pull. He pulled and pulled and pulled, till at last he hare cried: ‘STOP!’

But the goat went on pulling. He pulled the hare’s head back to its proper place, and his ears went way out from his head!

And that’s why hares have long ears. The end.
