Hi, this is the second story my 7yo daughter has written. She dictates to me and then copies out the final draft in her copybook. Feedback welcome. (Yeah, her moral is pretty random. )
Androcles and the Lion
Once upon a time, there was a slave named Androcles. He escaped from his master and fled to the forest. Then he came upon a lion who was lying down and groaning. He almost got ready to run away, but seeing that the lion was hurt, he sat down beside him.
The lion had laid out his paw which had a gigantic thorn stuck in it. Androcles took out the thorn and bandaged the lion's paw so that it wouldn't hurt. The lion was able to get up. He led Androcles into his cave and brought meat for him every day. But soon after, they were captured and brought to the Emperor.
The Emperor said Androcles would be thrown to the lion. Androcles was put into the arena and the lion loosed from his cage. Bounding hungrily toward Androcles, the lion soon recognized his friend's face, and stopped in front of him. Androcles told the whole story to the Emperor, and afterwards he and the lion were freed.
If you are happy, thank someone.
