Childhood must be certainly the happiest time of my children 's life



Want Dinner- Work Good


Once upon a time there were two mice, Gamis and Lazis and a cock, Laboris. Gamis and Lazis spend all their time by playing games. But for Laboris any kind of work was a labor of love. The cock used to stand up early in the morning and wake up others with his song. After that he started his work.

 One day Laboris swept the floor and found a grain of wheat. He brought the grain to the house and called the mice, and said:

 "I have found the grain of wheat. Now we should ground it. Who will do it?"

 "Just not me"- said Lazis.

 "Just not me"- repeat him Gamis.

 "So I will do it"- said Laboris.

 The cock took the grain and brought it to the mill. Lazis and Gamis stayed at home without any work.

 When Laboris came back he called them again:

" Now we have enough flour to make a bread"

 "But we have to do dough from it"- answered Lazis

 "Who will do it?"- asked Gamis

 "Just not me"- said Lazis

 "Just not me"- said Gamis

 "So again I should do it"- said Laboris

 The cock made the dough, made fire in the oven, put the dough in the hot oven.

 Just when the smell of done bread came around the house, the mice appeared at the table.

 "I am so hungry"- said Gamis

 "I am so hungry"- said Lazis.

 Here the cock told them:

 "Wait, wait! First tell me who found the wheat?"

 "You found"- said Gamis

 "You found" – said Lazis.

 "Who ground it into the flour?"- the cock continued asking.

 "You did"- said Gamis.

"You did"- said Lazis.

 "Who made dough from it. Who baked the bread?"

 "You did everything"- whispered the mice.

 "And what did you do?"- asked then the cock.

 But they had nothing to answer.

 The mice left the table and the cock did not stop them. There is nothing for what we should treat so lazy persons with bread.




                      The gust

One day a rabbit came to a little mouse .
the little mouse ran into a hole quickly .
the rabbit  said " Ouch , wait , wait ! "
 "I have business with you , I am a harmless rabbit ."
" So come out of your hole , don't you want any guest ? "
The mouse came out slowly and looked at the guest.
It saw that the guest had  long ears and it's mouth is open .
the mouse thought that , maybe the guest wants to eat him ,
or wants to take him with himself .
So , he went to his mother and stayed there .
The mouse's mother was a wise and perfect woman .
and she was smart .
She looked at the rabbit , and said :
" Don't afraid darling , he is our guest . he is so kind and nice .
So go and invite him to our house ."
The little mouse smiled and went to rabbit  . . .

The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina
This is a tale about a tail
a tail that belonged to a little red squirrel , and his name was Nutkin
He had a brother called Twinkleberry , and a great many cousins  :they lived in a wood at the edge of a lake .
in the middle of the lake there is an island covered with trees and nut bushes ;and amongst those trees stands a hollow oak - tree , which is the house of  an
owl who is called  Old Brown . . .

 part 2

The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

One autumn when the nuts were ripe , and leaves on the hazel bushes were golden and green - Nutkin and Twinkleberry and all the other little squirrels came out of the wood , and down to the edge of the lake .They made little rafts out of twigs , and they paddled away over the water to
Owl Island to gather nuts . Each squirrel had a little sack and a large oar , and spread
out his tail for a sail .


The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

They also took with them an offering of three fat mice as a present for Old Brown ,
and put them down upon his door - step.Then Twinkleberry and the other little squirrels
each made a low bow , and said politely "  Old Mr. Browm , will you favour us with permission to gather nuts upon your island? "
But Nutkin was excessively impertinent in his manners . He bobbed up and down like a little red  " cherry "  singing " Riddle me , rot - tot - tote !
A little wee man , in a red  red coat ! A staff in his hand , and a stonei in his throat ;
If you ' ll tel me this riddle , I 'll give you a groat ."


The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

Now this riddle is as old as the hills ; Mr . Brown paid no attention whatever to Nutkin .He shut his eyes obstinately and went to sleep .
The squirrels filled their little sacks with nuts , and sailed away home in the evening .
But next morning they all came back again to Owl Island ; Twinkleberry and the others brought
a fine fat mole , and laid it on the stone in front of Old Brown"s
doorway ,and said  :
" Mr . Brown , will you favour us with your gracious permission to gather some more nuts ?"

The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

But Nutkin , who had no respect , began to dance up and down , tickling old Mr. Brown with a nettle  and singing  :
 " Old Mr. B ! Riddle - me - ree !
     Hitty  Pitty within the wall,
     Hitty Pitty without  the wall;
     If you touch  Hitty  Pitty  ,
     Hitty Pitty will bite you ! "
  Mr . Brown woke up suddenly  and carried the mole into his house

                                                 part 6

The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

He shut the door in Nutkin 's face . Presently a little thread of blue  smok from a wood fire came up from the top of the tree , and Nutkin peeped through the  key - hole and sang  :
" A house full , a hole full !
 And you cannot gather a bowl - full ! "
The squirrels searched for nuts all over the island and filled their sacks .But Nutkin gathered Oak apples - yellow and scarlet  - and sat upon a beech - stump playing marbles , and
watching the door of old Mr . Brown

The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

On the third day the squirrels got  up very early and went fishing  ; they caught seven fat minnow as a present for  Old Browns . They paddled over the lake and landed under  a crooked  chestnut tree on Owl Island .

                                                                                     part 8

The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

TWINKLEBERRY and six other little squirrels each carried a fat minnow ; but Nutkin , who had no nice manners , brought no present at all . He ran in front , singing :
 " The man in the wilderness said to me ,
   ' How many strawberries grow in the sea ?'
     I answered him as I thought good -
     ' As many red herrings as grow in
the  wood "

 But , Old Mr . Brown took no interest in riddles - not even when the answer was provided for him . "

                                                                            part 9
The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

On the fourth day the squirrels brought a present of six fat beetles , which were as good asplums in  plum - pudding for Old Brown . Each beetle was wrapped up carefully in a
dock - leaf , fastened with a pine - needle pin .
     But Nutkin sang as rudely as ever :

" Old Mr. B ! riddle - me - ree
Flour of England , fruit of spain , 
Met together in a shower of rain ;
Put in a bag tied round with a string,
If you'll tell me this riddle , I'll give you a ring ! "

Which was ridiculous of Nutkin , because he had not got any ring to give to Old Brown .

The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

The other squirrels hunted up and down the nut bushes ; but Nutkin gathered robin's pin cushions off a briar bush , and stuck them full of pine - needle pins .On the fifth day the squirrels brought a present  of wild honey ; it was so sweet and sticky that they licked their fingers as they put it down upon the stone .
They had stolen it out of a bumble bees ' nest on the tippitty top of the hill .But Nutkin skipped up and down , singing  -
" Hum - a - bum ! buzz ! buzz ! Hum - a - bum  buzz !
As I went over Tipple - tine55 raleigh crescentMarkham,ONL3R4W4
I met a flock of bonny swine ;
Some yellow - nacked , some yellow backed !They were the very bonniest swine That e'er went over Tipple - tine .

                                                                                   part 11
The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

 Old Mr. Brown turned up his eyes in disgust  at the impertinence of  Nutkin .But he ate up the honey !
The squirrels filled their  little sacks with nuts .  But Nutkin sat upon a big flat rock , and played ninepins with a crab apple and green fir - cones .

On the sixth day , which was saturday , the squirrels came again for the last time ; they brought a new laid egg in a little rush basket as a last parting present for Old Brown .
But Nutkin ran in front laughing , and shouting :

" Humpty Dumpty lies in the beck ,
with a white counterpane round his neck ,
Forty doctors and forty wrights ,
Cannot put Humpty Dumpty to rights ! "


                                                 part 12
The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

Now old Mr. Brown took an interest in eggs ; he opened one eye and shut it again .
But still he didnot speak .
Nutkin became more andmore impertinent  :

" Old Mr. B ! Old Mr.B !
Hickamore , Hackamore , on the King 's kitchen door ;
All the king 's horses , and all the King 's men ,
Couldn't drive  Hickamore , Hackamore  ,
Off the king's kitchen door .

Nutkin danced up and down like a sunbeam ; but still Old Brown said nothing at all. "

  The tale of Squirrel Nutkina                  part   13                      

Nutkin began again "

" Arthur O ' Bower has broken his band ,
He comes roaring up the land !
The King of Scots with all his power ,
Cannot turn Arthur of the Bower ! "

Nutkin made a whirring noise to sound like the  wind , and he took a running jump right
onto the head of Old Brown !  .  .  .
 Then all at once there was a flutterment  and a scuffiement and a loud " Squeak ! "
The other Squirrels scuttered away into the bushes .

                                            part 14

The tale of Squirrel  Nutkina

This looks like the end of the story ; but it isn't .
Old Brown carried Nutkin into his house , and held him up by the tail , intending to skin
him ; but Nutkin pulled so very hard that his tail broke in two , and he dashed up the
staircase and escaped out of the attic window .
And to  this day , if you meet Nutkin up a tree and ask him a riddle , he will throw sticks
at you , and stamp his feet and scold , and shout  "
  " Cuck - cuck - cuck - cur - r - r - cuck - k - k - ! "
