夜行性动物知多少

If I were nocturnal, I would wake up when the world grows dark and the moon comes out.

I would walk to the park and call to my friends, “Hello, Beaver! Hello, Skunk! Hello, Raccoon! Come out and play with me!”

Beaver would teach me to build a dam of sticks and mud. Then Raccoon and Skunk would help me hunt insects and find berries for a midnight picnic in the grass.

After our snack, we would play hide-and-seek in the shadows and watch spiders spin webs.

When the sun started to rise, I would say, “Good night!” and walk home.

Then, as the birds began to sing, I would put on my pajamas and get into my bed.

If I were nocturnal, I would sleep all day and then wake up with the rising moon.

假如我是夜行者,我会在天色变暗、月亮出来的时候起床。

我会走到公园里,向朋友们打招呼:“你好,海狸!你好,臭鼬!你好,浣熊!出来和我一起玩吧!”

海狸教我用树枝和泥巴筑坝。浣熊和臭鼬帮我捕获昆虫,寻找浆果,为午夜的草地野餐做准备。

吃过点心后,我们在树荫下捉迷藏,看蜘蛛结网。

当太阳开始升起时,我会说:“晚安!”然后步行回家。

接着,当鸟儿开始唱歌时,我穿上睡衣,上床睡觉。

假如我是夜行者,我会睡一整天,然后随着升起的月亮醒来。
