The Thirsty Crow - Narrative Text

Posted by Memahami Teks Bahasa Inggris on 15 March 2008

On a hot day, a thirsty crow flew over a field looking for water. For a long time, she could not find any. She left very exhausted. She almost gave up.

Suddenly, she saw water jug below her. She flew straight down to see if there was any water inside. It was surprised because there was some water inside the jug. The crow tried to push her head into the jug. Sadly she found that the neck of the jug was too narrow. Then she tried to push the jug down for the water to flow out but she found that the jug was too heavy.

The crow thought hard for a while. Then she was looking around. She saw some pebbles. She suddenly had a good idea. She started picking up the pebbles one by one, dropping it into the jug. As more and more pebbles filled the jug, the water level kept rising. Soon it was high enough for the crow to drink. “It’s working” she said.
