helloeveryone! my name is ren qingwen. i am 8years old. i like drawing, reading, andtelling stories. today i am telling you a story- the missing forest
once upon atime, there was a kingdom of forest. everyone lived there happily. some werehunting, some were making clothes, and some were catching fishes. life there waswonderful.
there was alaw in this kingdom -nobody could cut down trees. once the prince was chasing arabbit and he kicked down three little trees by accident. the king knew it andhe let the guards hit the prince thirty times to punish him.
the king wasvery old. before he dead, he told the prince his last words,” i am very old now. the forest is our last hope. you willbe the new king. you couldn’t change the law, or a lot of monsters will come! rememberit my son!”
and shortlyafterwards, the prince became the new king. and the country became stronger andstronger. he was a good king but he still grudged that law!
oneday, a guest came to the kingdom. he showed the king
a drawing.there were houses and buildings on the picture. the king was vey excited. andhe decided to listen to that man. he commanded to cut down all the trees. andhe created a new world! everyone tried to stop him, but it didn’t work.
trees werecutting down, animals were running away. tall buildings were built! at thebeginning, people liked the new city,but later something bad happened. all kinds of monsters showed up: rainmonster, hot monster, wind monster and sand monster. people felt sick with theenvironment, because the new citybrought a lot of pollution. people missed the forest, the animals and thelovely city they used to live in. but they were not able to change it at all.they became homeless and had to abandon their city. watchedthe image lying before him, the king sank into the seat.
ladies andgentlemen, from this story we can see that we have to protect our home- theearth, we have to protect the trees, the rivers, the animals and the air, orsomething terrible must happen to us!
it is the onlyearth we got!
that’s all! thankyou!
