Story time – Paula the Vet

Adoro le storie per bambini e questa della pluripremiata scrittrice britannica Julia Donaldson è semplicemente meravigliosa.
Racconta di Paula, una bravissima veterinaria, che quotidianamente si trova alle prese con tanti animaletti domestici, ognuno con un problema diverso. Finché un giorno…
Ma ascoltiamola insieme!

“Paula is a vet and a very good vet.
She opens the door and she calls: “Next pet”.
Here comes a man. He walks through the door,
he says: “My cat has a very sore paw”.
Paula has a look. The paw is torn.
“Ah ah”, says Paula and takes out a thorn.

Yes, Paula is a vet and a very good vet.
She opens the door and she calls: “Next pet”.
Here comes a boy. He walks through the door,
he says: “My little dog’s tummy is sore”.
Paula tells the boy: “Your dog is ill,
but she’ll soon get better if she takes this pill”.

Yes, Paula is a vet and a very good vet.
She opens the door and she calls: “Next pet”.
Here comes a lady. She walks through the door,
she says: “My rabbit has a very long claw”.
Paula tells the lady the nail needs a clip.
Paula gets her scissors. Snip snip snip.

Yes, Paula is a vet and a very good vet.
She opens the door and she calls: “Next pet”.
Here comes a girl. She walks through the door,
she says: “My mouse won’t run anymore”.
Paula has a look and she says: “I think
your mouse just needs more water to drink”.

All the morning Paula the vet
sees pet after pet after pet after pet.
More and more dogs, more and more cats,
more and more rabbits and mice and rats.
Paula sees ordinary pets all morning.
Paula feels bored, Paula is yawning.
“It’s always the same”, thinks Paula the vet.

“I wish I could see an extraordinary pet”.
But Paula the vet is a very good vet,
so she opens the door and she calls: “Next pet”.
Here comes someone. He walks through the door.
It’s a very small boy with a dinosaur!”

ma anche di imparare i nomi di alcune parti del corpo, di animali e non:

PAW = ZAMPA
TUMMY = PANCINO
CLAW = ARTIGLIO
NAIL = UNGHIA

e qualche utile aggettivo:

SORE = DOLENTE
TORN = LACERATO
ILL = MALATO
BORED = ANNOIATO

Allora, vi è piaciuta la storia? E che mi dite delle illustrazioni di Joelle Dreidemy? Io le trovo adorabili!
Bye for now, j
