THE LONG DAY.

anniversary-week-6In celebration of the sixth anniversary of his move to the World-Wide-Web, Dr. Boli is reprinting some of his favorite articles from the past six years.

N.B.—Dr. Boli has designed this story for beginning readers. It uses a limited, but unpredictable, vocabulary, and is well suited to early reading lessons.

A man and a cat sat on the grass.

“It is a hot day,” said the cat.

“No, it is cold,” said the man.

“I say it is hot,” said the cat.

“I say it is cold,” said the man.

“Let us ask the dog,” said the cat.

So they asked the dog, “Is it a hot day or a cold day?”

The dog said, “It is a red day.”

“I say it is hot,” said the cat.

“I say it is cold,” said the man.

“I say it is red,” said the dog.

“Let us ask the cow,” said the cat.

So they asked the cow, “Is it a hot day, or a cold day, or a red day?”

The cow said, “It is a sharp day.”

“I say it is hot,” said the cat.

“I say it is cold,” said the man.

“I say it is red,” said the dog.

“I say it is sharp,” said the cow.

“Let us ask the sheep,” said the cat.

So they asked the sheep, “Is it a hot day, or a cold day, or a red day, or a sharp day?”

The sheep said, “It is a round day.”

“I say it is hot,” said the cat.

“I say it is cold,” said the man.

“I say it is red,” said the dog.

“I say it is sharp,” said the cow.

“I say it is round,” said the sheep.

“Let us ask the goat,” said the cat.

So they asked the goat, “Is it a hot day, or a cold day, or a red day, or a sharp day, or a round day?”

The goat said, “It is a thick day.”

“I say it is hot,” said the cat.

“I say it is cold,” said the man.

“I say it is red,” said the dog.

“I say it is sharp,” said the cow.

“I say it is round,” said the sheep.

“I say it is thick,” said the goat.

“Let us ask the hen,” said the cat.

So they asked the hen, “Is it a hot day, or a cold day, or a red day, or a sharp day, or a round day, or a thick day?”

The hen said, “It is not a hot day, or a cold day, or a red day, or a sharp day, or a round day, or a thick day. It is not a day at all. Now it is night, and it is time to go to sleep.”
