Text from Look At Me – English Level 1
Look at us.
Do you want to be our friend?
My legs are very strong.
I can run really fast with them.
And my arms… such a nice swing!
I like to draw.
I use my hands for drawing.
Should I draw your picture?
I can see you with my eyes.
The bird sings a sweet song.
I can hear it with my ears.
I think Ma is making halwa.
I can smell it with my nose.
Oh! This sugarcane is so tough! But
my teeth are strong too!
It is very sweet.
My tongue just told me.
I can sing.
Should I sing you a song?
Ma says I have a good voice. Does it
come from my throat?
