〔An I Can Read Book〕Level 1
One day Danny went to the museum. He wanted to see what was inside.
He saw Indians. He saw bears. He saw Eskimos. He saw guns. He saw swords. And he saw ......DINOSAUR! Danny loved dinosaurs. He wished he had one.
"I'm sorry they are not real," said Danny. "It would be nice to play with a dinosaur." "And I think it would be nice to play with you," said a voice. "Can you?" said Danny.
"Yes," said the dinosaur. "Oh, good," said Danny. "What can we do?" "I can take you for a ride," said the dinosaur. He put his head down so Danny could get on him.
"Let's go!" said Danny. A policeman stared at them. He had never seen a dinosaur stop for a red light.
The dinosaur was so tall Danny had to hold up the ropes for him. "Look out!" said Danny.
"Bow wow!" said a dog. "He thinks you are a car," said Danny. "Go away, dog. We are not a car." "I can make a noise like a car," said the dinosaur. "Honk! Honk! Honk!"
"What big rocks," said the dinosaur. "They are not rocks," said Danny, "They are buildings." "I love to climb," said the dinosaur. "Down, boy!" said Danny.
The dinosaur had to be very careful not to knock over houses or stores with his long tail. Some people were waiting for a bus. They rode on the dinosaur's tail instead.
"All who want to cross the street may walk on my back." said the dinosaur. "It's very nice of you to help me with my bundles," said a lady.
Danny and the dinosaur went all over town and had lots of fun. "It's good to take an hour or two off after a hundred million years," said the dinosaur. They even looked at the ball game. "Hit the ball," said Danny. "Hit a home run," said the dinosaur.
"I wish we had a boat," said Danny. "Who needs a boat? I can swim," said the dinosaur. "Toot, toot!" went the boats. "Toot, toot!" went Danny and the dinosaur.
"Oh, what lovely green grass!" said the dinosaur. "I haven't eaten any of that for a very long time." "Wait," said Danny. "See what it says." They both had ice cream instead.
「哇，瞧這些秀色可餐的嫩綠青草，」恐龍發出讚嘆聲並說，「我已經好久沒吃這些嫩綠的青草了。」（當恐龍準備享受這一份青草大餐時）丹尼大叫制止恐龍：「等一等，看看上面寫的。」（一個「PLEASE KEEP OFF（非請必入）」警告標誌就立在草地上）後來，他們選擇吃冰淇淋解饞。
"Let's go to the zoo and see the animals," said Danny. Everybody cam running to see the dinosaur.
Nobody stayed to see the lions. Nobody stayed to see the elephants.
Nobody stayed to see the monkeys. And nobody stayed to see the seals, giraffes or hippos, either.
"Please go away so the animals will get looked at," said the zoo man. "Let's find my friends," said Danny. "Very well," said the dinosaur.
