contoh story telling - The Little Chipmunk That Run Away

There once lived a nervous little Chipmunk. She was always afraid that something terrible would happen to her.

          One day, she said over and over again. Suppose the sky fell in, what would happen to me? She heard a slight noise. It was really only an apple that fell to the ground. But the little Chipmunk was so nervous that she was ready to believe anything and said in a frightening voice, "The sky is falling in". Then she ran away as fast as she could go.

          Soon she met an old brother Chipmunk, who asked, "Where are you running to, little Chipmunk?

          And the nervous little Chipmunk answered, "I have no time to stop and tell anything. The sky is falling in, and I am running away."

          The old Brother Chipmunk was so suprised. "The sky is falling in, is’n it?" said the old brother Chipmunk. And he told the story to his brother Chipmunk, until at last there were a hundred brother Chipmunk shouting, "The sky is falling in."

          Soon the larger animals heard what the chipmunks were saying. The Deer, the Sheep, the Pig, the Camel, the Tiger, and Elephant began to say, "The sky is falling in."

          Now the wise Lion heard all the noise and wondered what was happening. Then he stopped all the animals and asked, "What are you saying?" And the Lion said, "Little Chipmunk what made you say that sky was falling in?" And the little Chipmunk said, "I saw it over by the tree."

          "Well, " said the Lion, "Come with me of and i will show you how..." "I am going to take you on my back." And he took her on his back, and begged the animals to stay where they were until they returned. Then he showed the little Chipmunk how the apple had fallen upon the ground, making the noise that had frightened her. The little Chipmunk said, "Yes, I see. The sky is not falling in."

          The Lion said, "Let's go back and tell the other animals."

          So they went back. At last all the animals knew that the sky was not falling in, and there was peace once again in the land.
