Coyote Carol

         Back in the Wild West when Texas has no Colorado River and Rio Grande, Coyote Carol was born.  She was as big as a giant and as fast as a streak of lightning.  She could rope faster than a wolf could howl.  She was so darn good at roping they say she could rope faster than Pecos Bill eva could!

        Coyote Carol was born in Texas when her family decided to move to Wisconsin.  When she tried to get on she squashed the horse flatter than a squashed June bug!  Her parents had no choice but to leave her.  When she squashed the horse she also made the Grand Canyon !  Luckily she was adopted by a buncha coyotes.  For ten years Carol thought she was a coyote.  One day a cowgirl came by and saw Carol howling at the sun.

        She said, “Yer a human so why don’tcha act like one?”  

        “Okay I’ll be a cowgirl.” 

        Coyote Carol roped down a star and a streak of lightning to pin it down.  For two years she worked at a ranch breaking horses.  The very first bronco she broke was her very own.  Anyone else who tried to ride it got thrown so far nobody ever saw them again!  She named it Thrower cause a that.

        One day Texas had the biggest baddest drought it had eva seen!  It lasted so long the oldest man in Texas didn’t know what rain was!  Coyote Carol decided she had to do something.

        Carol roped some water from the Gulf of Mexico and called it the Rio Grande.  She then roped some water from a creek in Colorado and called it the Colorado River .  She then roped a rain cloud and squeezed it so hard Texas didn’t need rain for another forty years! 

        But they say that she fell in love with Pecos Bill.  And when he went with Slue-Foot Sue she left Texas for good!

        Nobody could take her place so her ranch is still empty till this day on.

    現在每週涵涵唸的全美語安親班都會發一本繪本<br />
    在強迫閱讀下 我的破英文也有小小的進步<br />
    涵涵的英文雖然自己說是安親班裏最破的<br />
    但也能跟她最喜歡的外師Teacher Jol 當好朋友<br />
    她的發音也比我好太多了<br />
