Go to SHORT STORY WORKSHEET "The Painter"
Once upon a time there was a painter whose job it was to paint the king’s children. Every day he hurried to finish one painting of each of the king’s children. The children were always naughty and lazy. It was very hard for the painter to get the children to sit still.
Then one day he asked his friend, a singer, to sing a song to distract the children. This worked well and the paintings were finished on time.
The king was very happy and said in a loud voice, “You will be a knight from now on, Sir Painter!”Go to SHORT STORY WORKSHEET "Painter"
