Чтение без слез: Count your chicks; Sweet things
Ann had a hen and a brood of chick-ens. She kept them under a coop in the gar-den.

She had ten chick-ens at first. But soon she be-gan to lose her chick-ens.
The cat came and seiz-ed two chick-ens.
Two chick-ens died from eat-ing too much hard food.
Two were crush-ed un-der the coop.
Two chick-ens fell in-to the pool.
Two chick-ens were trod-den up-on by the horse’s hoofs.

Then Ann had no chick-ens left.

Why can-not Het-ty eat her food this morning? She has eat-en sweet things. Bob went to the shop to buy tarts and sweet drops, and he gave them to Het-ty, and so she is quite ill, and can-not eat plain food. Het-ty can-not go to school to-day. She can-not play with her hoop to-day. She must be shut up in her bed-room.
