 文字稿// Penguins Cheer Up Old Folks

 Sometimes, very old people live in places called care homes… special places
with doctors and nurses to take care of them.
有一些人老了以後會住在安養院,接受醫生和護士的照顧。

Being very old can be hard.

Some very old people can't walk very well and feel tired and bored.

In England, one care home for old people had a fun idea.

They said, "Hey! Let's bring some penguins to play with everyone… that way
they won't feel so bored or lonely!
"在英國,有個安養院想到讓企鵝陪老人玩耍。

Yes! Penguins! Those little black and white birds that cannot fly.

The penguins came from the zoo… and guess what?

These penguins from the zoo are very friendly.

They sit on the old people's laps and let them pet them.
這些企鵝來自動物園,很喜歡親近人,會坐在老人的腿上讓他們撫摸。

The great grandmothers and great grandfathers in this care home in England
said the penguins were so cute.

They said the penguins made them forget their problems and feel happy.
住在安養院的爺爺奶奶說,可愛的企鵝讓他們非常的開心!

What a nice story.

We should be nice to old people.

One day, we will be the old people!
大家都會變老,所以我們也要善待老人家。

Ha! Can you imagine being 100 years old?

Well, one day you might be! And maybe you will get to pet a penguin, too!
