Vocabulary : Animals

Animals appear in many stories for children. Sometimes the animal represents
fear or evil, like the big, bad        in the story of Little Red Riding Hood. In such stories, there is invariably a 'happy ending' involving the death of the wolf and a victory of Good over Evil. In other stories, animals are friendly towards humans, like the    Lassie and in the tales of 'The Lone Ranger' where the     , Silver, is shown to have the qualities of loyalty and affection. In the Fables of Aesop,     are given human characteristics, and the stories are used to expose human failings or weaknesses; we are meant to learn a lesson from them.

Jerry .
