Sample Text from Fire! Fire! – A Story About Fire Safety
When Ana moved from her hometown in Goa to Mumbai, she was very excited. But she was also sorry to leave her uncle, her grandmother, her friends and most of all… Mando.
Mando was a serious dog who slept peacefully all day. But whenever there was a wedding in the neighbourhood, he howled woefully, until Ana’s uncle stopped playing his violin!
Ana loved Mando. She knew he would always protect her from strangers and dangers. And from her uncle’s noisy violin!
Mumbai was a noisy city. Ana missed the sounds of the birds, the church bells, and the village music. The only thing she didn’t miss was her uncle’s violin!
Sometimes, after school, Ana would go with her father as he delivered letters and parcels.
Ana would wait eagerly for her ride up in the lift. One day, she sneakily pressed all the buttons. The lift opened on every floor!
Every floor had a red speaker box on the wall. Each floor also had a strange-looking shower- head on the ceiling.
‘Who would want to take a bath here?’ she wondered.
