A. London Zoo

They say exotic animals were first taken to Britain in the thirteenth century when King Нenry III received some presents of leopards and elephants. The animals lived in the Tower of London in a special place. Later the King of Norway presented Henry III with a polar bear. The bear liked to go fishing in the Thames at the end of a long rope.

Five hundred years later, the Lonod Zoo, the world's oldest zoo, was opened on 27th April, 1828. It is situated in the heart of London in Regent's Park. Althought this zoo is located in the middle of the city, it still has plenty of animals to see including lions, camels, giraffes, penguins, tigers, monkeys and elephants. In fact, there are over 750 (16,802 animals) different kinds of animals in the London Zoo. It has one of the largest collections of animals in the UK.

The Zoo is devided up into many different areas, which are great fun to explore. The most popular attractions are Meet the Monkeys, Butterfly Paradise and Into Africa.

Children  can also take part in fun activities, see performances and visit interesting exhibitions.

Whatever the time of the year or weather, there is always something to see and do at the London Zoo. The London Zoo is open all the year round except 25th December.

Even during the war year, 1941, it had one million visitors. 

Nowadays, more than 6,000 animals live in the Zoo and some of them belong to endangered species. The Moscow Zoo consists of two parts (the Old and the New) which are connected by a bridge over the street. Everyone can enjoy watching swans, pelicans and other lovely birds In the zoo ponds as well as plenty of rare animals from all over the world and exotic reptiles.

At a set time each day, the keepers of the park introduce animals around the park for you to learn more about them and ask questions about them.

Little Women

(After L. M. Alcott)

It is six o’clock in the afternoon and the time when their mother comes home. Meg brings the lamp into the dining-room. Jo puts her mother’s shoes near the fire. She looks at the old shoes and says, “The shoes are very old. Mother must have new shoes.”

“I want to give Mother new shoes for the New Year," says Beth.

“No,” says Amy, “I want to give Mother new shoes.”

“ I am the eldest —," begins Meg, but Jo goes on, “ I take the place of the man in the family now when Father is far from home. I am going to give Mother new shoes.”

Then Meg looks at her hands and says, “I am going to give Mother new gloves.’’

“I have some nice handkerchiefs for Mother,” says Beth. Amy looks at her sisters and then tells them: “I am going to give Mother a little bottle of scent. I have a dollar and I can buy it.”

At that time the door in the hall opens and their mother comes in. She is a tall woman. Her clothes are old, but the girls look at their mother and see the most beautiful woman.
